Every point has three small pictures, that would be better suited to an iPhone app. One picture is a picture of an inserted needle, the one next to it is different with the meridian and the specific point enumerated. No land marks just overly lit washed out pictures. The needle insertion picture is often (every photo I checked that is) a different pose so you can't even directly compare the two. Next to those is an often skewed computerized image with little relief in the images that render it hard to pick out the details. No muscles, bones, nerves, arteries or veins are labeled.
I bought an atlas I do not think it unreasonable to expect some land marks and details.
When I was in school I bought a cross sectional anatomy book of acupuncture points, it was only sketches and it was not all the points, but it actually had useable information. Maybe as another reviewer noted this would be good for a patient needling themselves, but as a practitioner I would not recommend it to my patients for that purpose and for students it is next to useless.
It was cheap, that is why I made the purchase without seeing the insides. Upon unwrapping it, it took only seconds for my smile of anticipation to flip to a frown. Upon closing the book and rereading the cover I smiled again at the credit for " Prof. Dr. Dr. Thomas Ots". I guess he is such a Dr. they had to list it twice. I prefer to smile for good reasons.
