First of all, my comment specifically addresses the kindle edition and the technical side of it. As for the content, the book is amazing - no complaints there.
Amazon seems not to understand or just ignore the difference between fiction books that you read from page one onwards, possibly in one sitting, and academic handbooks.
I bought the book for my new iPad mini and as it is - it's nearly useless.
By buying this, you end up with a bunch of over 4000 numbered pages of text in digital format, just like you would scan the paper version.

1. There is no clickable or expandable table of contents.
2. You can't do full-text search, actually there is no text search at all.
3. There are no hyperlinks, the Index section is also plain text - no clickable reference to the actual pages.

Someone missed the possibilities that digital format gives and just took the path of the least ressistance.
I will be asking for a refund. If you are considering buying the kindle edition for your iPad, consider Inkling edition, which is a bit more expensive but a lot more useful.

I just downloaded the kindle version and all off the advertised videos are disabled! I feel a bit ripped off. Otherwise good graphics and an overall great book.

'Harrison's principles of internal medicine' itself is the best book for understanding and refering internal medicine.
But, Kindle edition is the only PDF version. It is difficult to say this book kindle edition.
I think this book was made by scanning of paper book.

The text is wonderful. The publisher has failed to recognize and harness what ebooks are about. The text is unreadably small, and moving from page to page is cumbersome. If I can find an alternate, I will be seeking a refund.

Harrison's is a great line of books, and now they have partnered with other companies to provide robust ebook data. Here is information on it

"For readers who wish to continue using Harrison's in a single volume format, we are pleased to offer two new eBook versions of the 18th edition: a traditional eBook, with text and illustrations from the new edition included for reading on a portable e-reader or on a desktop, and an enhanced eBook developed especially for new tablet devices (e.g., iPad, Galaxy, Playbook, Nook) that offer high-definition resolution of multimedia content and interactive features. The Harrison's 18th edition enhanced eBook will contain extensive embedded video footage, including all of the new clinical procedural videos; the wonderful neurologic examination videos from Samuels and Lowenstein; examples of cardiovascular imaging and assessment; and high-resolution versions of more than 2000 color images from the book and the Harrison's atlases on the companion DVD. Along with other social media features, the enhanced eBook offers users the opportunity to take and share notes from lectures and their own reading. Additional resources include Harrison's Online, a continuously updated electronic resource that highlights and summarizes newly published articles on significant medical findings and advances. Harrison's Self-Assessment and Board Review, a useful study guide for board review based on information in the 18th edition, will soon be produced. Harrison's Manual of Medicine, a pocket version of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, is available in both print and electronic formats. "

1) it is not working on my android 2.2 phone samsung galaxy SL gt-19003. message is displayed by kindle reader is that this book is incompatible. this phone already runs my other kindle book braunwald heart disease very nicely.

2) i could open the book on my windows computer. i realized that the kindle edition of this book is nowhere near expectations. it is not possible to adjust font size, words per line, lines and columns per page etc. which are vital for reading on a mobile device. otherwise it is not more than a pdf file of a book.

I love these books!!! First of all, they are beautiful! The pages don't seem to be as shiny as the previous edition, which is always a plus if you study under lamp light. Tons of illustrations, photographs and charts. The ink on a couple of pages does seem to be a little off, but nothing major. I've only just started using them but from what I've seen so far it is awesome. Latest classifications and diagnostic criteria for diseases like RA. Also the dvd seems to be very useful. I've only gone through the neurology exam, but it seems to be a high quality video with important information. I think these books are worth it, especially for the price!
