"This book provides an interesting counterpoint for obstetricians and gynaecologists practicing western medicine, as the explanations, treatments and management are so different...Dr Maciocia is able to compare the up-to-date Western scientific treatment and pathophysiology of the conditions with the TCM perspective...it is hard to imagine a more diverse, comprehensive or better text-book for those practicing TCM who are spcialising in woman's health, or for obstetricians and gynaecologists with an interest in TCM."
Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, May 2012--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Use of extraordinary vessels is heavy. He often talks about LU7 and KI6 is my of his prescriptions. But did you know that ssome doctors , including classic books, say that the order in which these 2 points are used makes a difference, as well as the order of their removal, and that which side they are placed is different for women and men.
I would highly recommend this book.
One of the distinctive features of this book is that not only are individual etiologies presented (e.g. PCOS due to Dampness or Damp-Heat), but the author also includes combined patterns and discusses their characteristics and treatment strategies (e.g. PCOS due to Damp-Phlegm, Kidney-Yang deficiency and Blood Stasis). This alone puts this book in a league of its own, and is a very helpful feature. The author also discusses the case histories and Modern Chinese Literature reports in terms of their weaknesses and strengths - likewise an instructive feature.
All in all, this is one of the best books on Chinese medicine I've seen, and I am pleased to have it on my shelf. It will continue to inform my practice and make me a better practitioner for decades to come.
