Format: Paperback
First - I'm not Gail, I'm her husband, Bill. I got my first issue of this book in 1981 and have not been without it since. To say that the information is dated is true, but Chinese medicine is thousands of years old and still widely used throughout the the world. The pressure points and ailments have not changed as humanity has evolved, therefore being "dated" does not truely apply to this book. Every time I use the ABC program I am amazed. I've mainly used it on my wife for lower back problems and a bi-polar disorder, but over the years we have used it for many ailments. It's even more astonishing that my fingers can accomplish what medical chemistry does - but without the side effect. However we still do as the book suggests - about always consulting your family doctor. This book is as much a part of my first aid kit or medicine cabinet as a bandaid or asprin. I have read and purchased several books on acupressure, many are very good but I always come back to this one as my standard. The copy I have now is worn and torn, time to buy a new one. Thanks Amazon for having it on your list.

Format: Paperback
There are countless massage books, but there are few books written in English about using accupressure. This book has too much hyperbole, and I am skeptical of many of its claims. However, I have successfully used some of the accupressure points for relieving pain and migraine. I think the hand drawn diagrams are very useful. The book is heavily influenced by traditional Chinese medicine, but is partially Americanized and I find it far more useful than traditional Chinese textbooks.

In summary, this book could be improved, but it is very useful as it is.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book helped me when I researched why I lost my memory on 3 out of 5 occasions. It explains Gv 16, nape of neck. Especially with respect to sex. I actually felt it happening and I read this in the first edition that many years ago in a library borrow for my research. I have kept trying to find out if it was updated and was happy to get this one with the same information. The other 2 times was due to too much anesthesia during surgery and that knowledge is very important also. In all cases I need to research the Circle of Willis. It's interesting that in the past 2 weeks, President Obama has chosen a personal research for all of us: mapping the brain. I grew up in an era where sex education for kids was "above the neck" and I followed that all my single life. Great way to overcome addiction in all cases of addiction. The heart simply supplies the power for all this. Also 4 Maccabees, Chapter 1 is helpful if you like using the Bble as a 21st Century historical resource of evolution of intelligence.

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Steve on September 22, 2000
Format: Paperback
I agree with the second reviewer. The writing style is that of hukstar snake oil health food advertisement. It is also explains things poorly. The diagrams are labeled with handwritten notes making them hard to read. The diagrams don't match the descriptions. Hardly any background information is given to "why" you are doing one thing as opposed to another. The directions suck. You don't have an easy sense of knowing what you are doing

This book is very poorly illustrated. The author seems more interested in showing details of the person's hairstyle and clothing than clearly showing where the pressure points are. In some cases there is no pressure point indicated although the name of the point is given. I would not recommend this book to anyone seeking to become proficient in acupressure.

You have to use the methods and techniques to get results. This is a good reference to use when everything else hasn't worked. The techniques for relaxing and quieting the mind is worth the price of the book.
