"Herold: Innere Medizin" by Gerd Herold (MD) is one of the leading textbooks of internal medicine in Germany, if not the leading one. Its enormous popularity is based on the facts that it represents the topics of internal medicine in accurate and systematic form and that it is being updated every year for nearly 30 years now. Because of its success, it has been translated into several languages, like Bulgarian, Czech, English, Estonian, French, Georgian, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, and Spanish. The translated versions are being published and sold by the translators themselves on their own authority; the author receives a license fee.
