This is a lucid and easy to read text, which I had used in School and have been looking for ever since. It is an excellent point reference text and a splendid overview of Acupuncture therapy modes, as well as a fine introduction to TCM principles. It's more traditional organization makes it easy to find points and insights. While not as instructive as The Foundations of Chinese Medicine: A Comprehensive Text for Acupuncturists and Herbalists. Second Edition, it nevertheless provides a sound basis for Acupuncture practice and study.

This is a serious work of the Chiness academy of traditional medicine of Beijing, it is a needed piece to understand the laberintic-like acupuncture theory, for the medical doctor that uses acupuncture as a help, not a life style but a every day help in the art of cure. I recommend it for beginners and not just them but practical fellows, if u take the Seirin Atlas of Acupuncture, that is excellent, this item will clear every doubt.

Format: Hardcover
Basically, I wanted to have an theoretical insight in acupuncture. I have already read articles in a Mexican magazine called "Muy Interesante" and "Discovery", yet not of those were deep enough. Luckly, my search paid off. Although somewhat overwhelming by historical information about the evolution and origins of acupuncture (at the beggining), this book really gives a through explanation of acupuncture's theoretical principles such as the concepts of Qi, Channels, Meridians, Points, etc. I read the first chapters only, but they were enough to convince me that this book is a very good information compilation. Later on, they really get even deeper into acupuncture (and since I do not intend to be an acupuncturist I stopped.)
