This book is the worse! It is very sad that I had to throw away $45 on this book. The national board exams test off this book, and it is one of the poorest translations I have ever come across in all of my acupuncture and oriental medicine studies.

it was one of the first texts on acupuncture in english and still stands as a required text on nationals and the california boards... don't now about other places. there are some errors and a lot of the theory and technique info is lost in translation but it is the first place most of us start.

It's ok but a very hard going book when your first getting into chinese medicine
Mike Oehme
Detailed introduction without reflecting on epistemological background (therefore see Paul U. Unschuld, Fengli Lan "Metaphor-The weaver of Chinese Medicine", Thomas Ots)

This is the basic acupuncture text from the Foreign Language Press, Beijing. I found it to be helpful in giving point locations and treatment assessment.

Wouldn't necessarily recommend this unless you are studying it... Or if you are really interested, motivated and don't mind being confused.

Recommends it for: anyone studying Chinese Medicine
Shelves: tcm
Along with Benski's Materia Medica, this is one of the standard texts anyone studying TCM needs to know inside and out. I figure I might as well start now.

A classic for a reason. Organisation and coordination of material is a bit simplistic, but understandable.
