Editorial Reviews

Review

This is one of the most comprehensive textbooks I have ever come across. It truly leaves no stones unturned and each area is covered in impressive scope and depth. It is an indispensable source of reference for cardiologists and non-cardiologists alike. The online version is very user-friendly and follows the same format as the textbook. One added bonus is the update feature where all the most recent advances are updated regularly and inserted into the relevant chapters. The CD-ROM contains a generous number of very well chosen, good quality slides which can be imported for use in presentations. I would strongly recommend this textbook as a worthy addition to the medical library of any primary or secondary care physician and the online version makes it a very practical reference tool for everyday use. Nilar Than, Univadis, December 2009 REVIEW OF THE LAST EDITION "The editors have accomplished an impressive feat: improving on an already classic text...A worthy addition to the medical library of any practicing cardiologist, cardiology fellow, or health care practitioner with a special interest in heart disease." - JAMA

Format: Hardcover
You can't say that there is a spectacular change from the previous edition. The better a product gets, the harder it is to improve it. But the format is frendlier, the guidelines and recommandations have been updated (which was a weak spot of the previous edition), and there are some new interesting chapters (like the management of stroke). In conclusion, still very useful as a reference.

Format: Hardcover
I am working as a researcher and a physician, and sometimes teach students. Although this book is not research-oriented, authors intend to incorporate recent products of basic medicines, such as molecular biology, molecular genetics, basic electrophysiology (e.g. ion channels), pharmacology, and so on. If you want to know what has already been proved and clarified about the cardiological disease you are interested in, this book will help you. Certainly any single volume cannot cover all the things in this field, this book will give you the idea on the key point of the diseases. Certainly, this book is also useful for practitioners. The book gives you a lot of results of large clinical studies, and even when you lose your way, you can also start with the basic pathophysiology of the disease.

I'm a Belgian customer (Europe).

I'm really enchanted of amazon's service. Though the shipping costs were not very clear, I ordered this textbook at the begin of december and I was surprised to get it on 28th december as it was announced between 29th decembre and 1st february.

Braunwald's heart disease is really the best textbook of cardiology and this brand new edition is better again. Very clear and well illustrated, it can be used by cardiologist as well as by internist or student in medicine.

bought it used, but great condition. The book itself is good if you planning to do cardiology or are already doing cardiology.
Not a general internal medicine book!
