"Herold: Internal Medicine" has become a standard compendium of internal medicine in Germany, being published for nearly three decades now. It has been updated annually, therefore it always contains the actual knowledge of internal medicine and the latest medical guidelines.
The textbook gives an overview of the complete topics with detailed information about diagnosis and therapy. It has a clear structure which makes it easy to find the necessary information quickly; this makes it, as it has been written in a review, an "indispensable reference work for many physicians and a learning bible for many medical students" who use it for preparing for their exams.
Or as it has been written in another review, "the reader can find all subject areas logically arranged and therefore clearly represented. The arrangement of the chapters is always the same, thus making a good overall view possible."
A third review describes it as follows: "Within a very short time, the reader receives a host of information and feels well informed about every subject area. In order to understand deep reaching connections, it is partially necessary to consult a more comprehensive book on internal medicine. In general, though, »Herold« definitely is sufficient for covering the necessary knowledge on this subject. (...) The facts are presented in well readable sentences and key points. Therefore, fast reading and structured learning are very well possible. Apart from important pieces of advice for hospital work, the reader also gets useful information for making a diagnosis."
Another review describes it like this: "Such topicalty is rare amongst textbooks, however it is essential in day-to-day medical practice. (...) The textbook ranges far below the average of comparable (content) textbooks, in which the price is now rapidly approaching € 100. It is a textbook with an excellent price-performance ratio."
Because of its success, the textbook has been translated into several languages. And now it finally is available in the first English edition.
HEROLD – simply ingenious!
