Review

"An indispensable reference tool. . . . The augmented content and enhanced visual appearance of the 2005
edition of Braunwald's classic textbook make this an excellent reference, while the electronic access and timely updates further increase its functionality.

The seventh edition of Braunwald's Heart Disease would be 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, July 20, 2005 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
There are many authors that have mastered their subjects. Once in a while however, you come across some authors that have, in addition, mastered the art of imparting that knowledge to others. That is what you have in this volume that has become the indispensable resource for Cardiologists and cardiology fellows. What Harrison's is to Internal Medicine, and Gray's is to Gross Anatomy, Braunwald's is to Cardiology. It is probably easier to talk of the beach without mentioning water than to talk of cardiology without Braunwald's Heart Disease.
This is a very worthy reference resource.

Anyone familiar with Dr. Braunwald's superb cardiovascular exploits in the "Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine" would not be surprised by the richness of this book.
The diligently crafted chapters are comprehensive, authoritative, well-illustrated, and include all the 'ins' and 'outs' of contemporary cardiology. It is one of the most consistent and coherent multi-authored texts in the field.
This single-volume CD-ROM package is a rich blend of evidence based medicine, best practice, and all the user-flexibility an e-book enthusiast would expect.

This is the classic cardiology textbook. It is comprehensive, with lots of graphs and illustrations. Yes it is big (over 2000 pages), but would likely be 500+ pages less without pictures. Some pictures are worth a thousand words.

Online at[...] is great. I had some trouble, but it was resolved quickly and I can access the book anywhere. The search feature is good.

I am currently using it for the boards. Yes, I have board review books from Mayo and Cleveland Clinic, but they tend to go over the big stuff, and the boards often are more detailed. The most recent guidelines from the AHA/ACC are at the end of each relative chapter. It is very readable compared to some other cardiology texts.

Dr. James Thogtam: A classic book for those in the field

WITH THE SEVENTH EDITION OF BRAUNwald's Heart Disease, the editors have accomplished an impressive feat: improving on an already classic text. With 36 new chapters and full-color figures and photographs, the new edition is substantially altered in both content and appearance. Compared with the rather limited color-plate photographs in the sixth edition, the color photographs, figures, and tables in each chapter significantly enhance the new text.

Informative chapters on the foundations of cardiovascular medicine remain, including detailed discussions of history taking, physical examination, and electrocardiography, topics often overshadowed in an era of rapidly progressive medical technology.....

The seventh edition of Braunwald's Heart Disease would be a worthy addition to the medical library of any practicing cardiologist, cardiology fellow, or health care practitioner with a special interest in heart disease.

Make no mistake. Everyone knows that this is the number one textbook in Cardiology. Expert consult online, however, could be better, with more visual resources and interviews, for example. This book desearves much more from this site.
