Format: Paperback
I have a bookshelf full of esoteric books on Thai healing, culture and spirituality. Most of them are written in the language of academia to such an extent as to render fascinating subject matter into brain numbing boredom. Pierce Salguero successfully manges to be an adademic without losing his passion for his subject, and without forgetting that someone might actually want to enjoy reading about it.

I selected this book based primarily on seeking out a more recent copyright dated publication on Thai medicine and with hope that the author would present both a historical and a more recent perspective on how this medical tradition has survived in a world that more often embraces Western convention. The author, C. Peirce Salguero, earned his M.A. in East Asian Studies at the University of Virginia in 2005 and wrote his thesis on the cultural history of Thai medicine. Subsequently, he had his thesis published as this handbook I'm reviewing.

I liked the book very much. Although it was originally written for the author to attain his M.A., he did an elegant job of packing in a lot of information within a limited number of pages and did it with a personal and rather humble style of writing that would appeal to the masses and not just those people who are academically minded.

Just the same, a point of which both pleased and concerned me was that he gleaned both his modern and traditional impressions of Thai medicine primarily through his experiences at the Shivagakomarpaj Traditional Medicine Hospital in Chiang Mai. Of the four years between 1997 and 2001, he spent a little over two years of his time in Thailand at this hospital, training as a practitioner and teacher of Traditional Thai Medicine (TTM). This hospital, considered one of the most prestigious traditional medical training centers in Northern Thailand, is both a government-licensed school and a community clinic that provides free traditional health-care to the local villages. Although it conveniently provides him with a `one-stop-shop' to gain insight into both modern and traditional influences in medical practice, it is equally limiting to what the school interprets as traditional practices.

I refer to this book often, as I have a great interest in the subject of Traditional Thai Medicine. It is well written and ultimately gives the reader a sense of the true depth of history behind the medicine that preceded Western culture in Thailand. The tradition that shaped medicine in Thailand exists today and this book opens the reader's eyes to its history, culture, and spirituality. That is what makes Thailand and its traditional medicine so unique.
