I liked the book soo much I bought another one to give to my mom for her birthday.
So I returned it and bought the paper book. Chapters 2 & 3 explain simply and clearly how to locate points and do acupressure. The main part of the book is a reference, with the index just giving a list of page numbers for each issue you would treat. Point locating is described using medical terminology to I had to look up “Anatomical terms of location” on the online Wikipedia to figure that out, and I do not know the medical terminology for bones and tendons etc. that she uses so I just have to rely on the pictures. Mostly it’s a good book though that information should have been included in the book.
It is set up according to the meridians and covers every point, which could be overwhelming for a newcomer. I believe there is a market for a shorter version of this book as an introduction - the 25 most used points for acupressure or something like that would be a great reference for people getting started.
That being said, it is well thought out, well illustrated and obvious that a lot of heart and soul was poured into it.
This is the 4th book I have purchased by this author. Her books have been so helpful. I am very interested in learning how to have good health without the use of prescription drugs. Her books always give good suggestions about how accomplishing this.
Keep up the good work and write another book soon.

I'd have given it 5 stars, but some of the illustrations aren't that clear, the paper is quite thin (you can see the writing on the other side of the page), and I'd expect a book like this (which is going to be handled frequently) to be more sturdily made.
