Format: Paperback
This is one of the better introductory texts to the study of Chinese medical theory. What it has and others lack are helpful footnotes along the way to solidify the many, often confusing and sometime non-discernable, concepts in Chinese medicine. In addition, readers are eased into the basics of Chinese materia medica by having such information intertwined within the theoretical discourse. A real gem.

I've always thought this is a great textbook on basic Chinese medicine. I wish more schools used it as their basic introductory text. The material is authoritative and the terminology is accurate. I think you get a lot of value for your money with this book. I far prefer it to Giovanni Maciocia's Foundations book. This book could solve a lot of the problems in the TCM schools in North America.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is like a complete textbook on Chinese Medicine. It goes over all the fundamental theories in great depth and detail. Beginning with the Yin-Yang theories and going through the Five Phases, 8 principles, and everything else, this book provides all the necessary information. It does read like a textbook, but only because it IS a textbook! I am not enrolled in a school of Oriental medicine, but I bought this book and I LOVE it. It was inexpensive for its size and the amount of information it provides. I am able to read it even though I have not had any formal training in TCM, yet I think experienced students and even practitioners will find this book useful and complete.
An essential must for any TCM library!

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for current practitioners and students of Chinese Medicine, regardless if your dicipline is herbal, acupuncture, or both. It's main approach is 8 principle, but those of the 5 element philosphy can gain from it also. The lay person may have a difficult time understanding without being familiar with the general philosphy of Chinese Medicine.
