This textbook is escorted along its way by a foreword from:
- Ch. S. Lieber (New York, USA) - 1st edition
- A. M. Hofmann (La Jolla, USA) - 2nd edition
- U. M. Leuschner (Frankfurt, Germany) ) - 2nd edition
- H. Denk (Graz, Austria) - 3rd edition

"The current edition contains up-to-date information, but also stands for tradition and progress in hepatology. The reader is carefully introduced into the subject matter and learns to experience and understand everything to the full extent.
It is only possible to impart knowledge and to convey enthusiasm if one has great personal involvement. This certainly applies to the author, Erwin Kuntz."
