The most widely read textbook in the history of medicine made more essential to practice and education by an unmatched array of multi-media contentThrough six decades, no resource has matched the encyclopedic scope, esteemed scholarship, and scientific rigor ofHarrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, both as a textbook and as a clinical reference. It remains the most universally respected textbook in all of medical publishing and the pinnacle of current medical knowledge.The eighteenth edition ofHarrison'sfeatures expanded and more in-depth coverage of key issues in clinical medicine, pathophysiology, and medical education. The acclaimedHarrison'sDVD has been updated to include 53 chapters not found in the text; 14 all-new how-to videos commissioned specifically forHarrison's; PowerPoint presentations on essential topics in medical education; and hundreds of bonus illustrations. Presented in two volumes NEW text design greatly enhances readability NEW chapters on cutting-edge topics in clinical medicine Expanded focus on global considerations of health and diseaseEditor-in-Chief: Dan Longo, MD (Boston, MA)is Professor of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School.

Very Inaccurate September 13, 2011
Editor Fauci includes van der Meer and Bleijenberg's egregiously inaccurate chapter on ME ("CFS"). It is no better than that in earlier editions by Fauci colleague Straus.

The article paints ME as having proven psychological components and relatively unproven organic components. Nothing could be further from the truth.

For example, they claim that "a direct microbial causation is unproven and unlikely." And that CBT and GET are the only proven treatments while acyclovir and many others have been proven ineffective.

And so on. I give Harrison's one star because such misrepresentations by Drs. van der Meer and Bleijenberg have caused a tremendous amount of iatrogenic morbidity in ME patients.

I am very eager to give Harrison's five-stars, because in most other respects, it really deserves it. I have learned a lot from it. Please substitute an accurate chapter on ME and I would be delighted to give it five-stars and evangelize for Harrison's. The essential documents on ME (with more than enough information to fill a chapter in Harrison's) are:

- the 2003 Canadian ME/CFS Consensus Criteria

- the 2010 validated research version of the above CCC

- the 2011 International ME Criteria

Please contact me if you wish further information or if you wish to find an author who will draft an accurate chapter for you free of charge. Thank you.
