"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
