The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine is a teaching text that contains the knowledge base needed by every general cardiologist and specialist cardiologist as a background to their specialty interest. The textbook content is based on the Core Curriculum of the European Society of Cardiology, making the textbook essential reading for all cardiology trainees. The textbook contains much of the evidence base that is used to derive the practice guidelines published by the European Society of Cardiology, and its contents will be used as a basis for testing the knowledge of trainees who seek to qualify as cardiologists and of cardiologists who must re-accredit their status as cardiovascular health care providers.

The book contains 38 chapters flowing from the clinical and investigation interface with the patient through comprehensive desciprtion of disease processes and pathophysiological states and finally to the complex interrelationship between the heart and the mind. The text and design is intended to produce a book that is readable and readily understandable. The text is interspersed with many full color diagrams and simple tabulations. Line diagrams are re-drawn to produce a consistent feel to the book. Chapters relating to cardiac imaging, for example, echocardiography, computed tomography, cardiac magnetic resonance, and nuclear cardiology are richly illustrated.

The book is comprised of a print and on-line version. The text in the print version has comprehensive referencing, but the references themselves are available only from the on-line edition where the citations are directly linked to PubMed in order to facilitate retrieval of abstracts and full texts, where available. In both versions, there is a "further reading" list, which consists of major reference works, practice guidelines, especially those published by the European Society of Cardiology, scientific statements, and task force reports. The on-line version includes video images that are represented by a static photograph in the print version. Each chapter begins with a summary of the chapter and a listing of the chapter contents, and is completed with a few paragraphs of personal reflection from the authors about the standing of their subject and its likely development during the next five years.
