5-0 out of 5 stars Becoming One With the Points
This is an excellent read for any acupuncture student, practitioner or enthusiast!Deadman's language is poetry.The points come alive when reading this text!
5-0 out of 5 stars Peter Deadman's A Manual of Acupuncture
Not possible to find a better English language reference source than this book. I have used the book in hard copy but prefer it on CD. Quick to find items using CD and a notebook and CD weigh less that the actual manual. The pronunciations that come with the book on CD seem accurate, depending on the area from whence your Chinese comes. Good background data for all point locations and rationale for their use.

5-0 out of 5 stars A stunning update of a classic
When I went to update this with my handwritten notes made on the second edition I found that the material had already been added.Much improved over the older edition with more information on alternate species, constituents, pao zhi and modern uses.It still has the annoying multiple indexes but at least they are thumb indexed. Well worth the investment for owners of earlier editions who actively use herbal medicine.

4-0 out of 5 stars Important, but flawed?
My copy of this book is full of printing errors, including chapter summaries that are incomplete and index page numbers that are as many as two pages off.I expect much more from Eastland Press.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Chinese medicinal products bible - required reading
At last, Bensky et al. third edition is finally out and what a vast source of knowledge it is. For anyone using Chinese medicinal products, this really is your bible. Massively expanded from the 2nd edition, there are hundreds more many medicinal products included.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chinese Herbal Medicine: Formulas and Strategies
As a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine I can attest to the value of this book's information. It is a fantastic reference book and provides practitioners with detailed formulae descriptions, analysis of formulae and is invaluable to any Chinese medicine practitioner.
4-0 out of 5 stars Bensky's Formuales & Strategies
This is a classical book about Herbal Formulaes. I have read it several times and consult it often. I believe Strategy refers to how an herbologist will be able to use the book to add or modify ingridient and dosage. Unlike the review I wrote for "Material Medica", I find this is a useful book with much needed information to come up with a prescription. Needless to say the translation of this book is choppy in many places. The authors can keep the terms more to the point. These flowerly terms used is a minus.
5-0 out of 5 stars No contenders
The fact that no real contenders have emerged in more than 13 years since this book's publication is sufficient testimony to its quality.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It Works
I have found similar books to be disappointing. This is a very large book with a lot of information that allows you to tailor treatments for you and your family. I have owned the book for about a year and have yet to find an ailment that wasn't covered.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still the One
This book is still, in my opinion, the best and most accurate introduction to standard Chinese medicine on the market. Often imitatated, nver duplicated. There's a reason it's been in print since 1982.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
Very clear, yet it does not over simplify it. If you are new to Chinese Medicine or want to deepen your understanding, this book is the way to go.
5-0 out of 5 stars Lived Up To It's Reputation

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book
I purchased this book recently. I have found the information in it simply amazing. Within a few days I have noticed an overall sense of well being and improvement to my health. And no I am not connected to the author in any way. It is just a very good book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Life-enhancing and practical
I've had this wonderful book for over 10 years, but only really began to apply the Internal Exercises after a trip to China. I saw a Qi Gong demonstration there and was very impressed, especially by the fact that the Qi Gong master looked all of 25 years old (I'm sure he was in his 40's at least). I began to practice Dr Chang's set of exercises faithfully on returning from the trip and have experienced increased energy, suppleness, better sleep, and clarity of mind. I was able to abandon my use of prescription antihistamines for allergies and now have no symptoms whatever. My nightly headaches, which were requiring nightly Tylenol, have also resolved. My endurance in sports, particularly alpine skiing, has increased without requiring increased preparatory workouts; and if I am diligent at doing the exercises after a workout, I experience no stiffness or soreness (something I'm starting to appreciate as an aging Baby Boomer!).5-0 out of 5 stars Exellent Book for General Health
My son bought me this book about 6 months ago and since then I have been in exellent health through doing the exersises. In my present job I do not have much time to exersise so I use this book to help me maintain a healthy mind and body. I would recommend this book to anyone. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Atlas of Chinese Tongue Diagnosis Volume 1
As a medical professional, I have an interest in what works to bring health to the system.At times, alternative medicines when appropriately applied, in the hands of the right people, ones trained in health care and disease, can offer stimulating results.But the question of how to obtain reliable material to diagnose and treat a disease remains a current issue.This book helps bridge the gap between Chinese diagnostics and the Western approach to disease.Atlas of Chinese Tongue Diagnosis provides visual illustrations of various ailments, mapped outwardly on the tongue, and includes written descriptions and symptoms.When applicable, it correlates the topography of the tongue to Western disease.However, the book is not all inclusive.It lacks treatment.I would suggest a companion, Radiant Health by Ron Teeguarden.Teeguarden's work covers portions of the ancient Chinese art of health and offers a treatment program designed to correct deficencies and disturbances in Qi.The two together provide a reliable source for a medical professional to understand and apply the basics in Chinese medicine.I highly rate this book when accompanied with Teeguarden's.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent atlas of tongue diagnosis
This is an excellent book for anyone interested in Chinese tongue diagnosis.The book is divided into sections according to pattern (Kidney disharmonies, Stomach and Spleen disharmonies, etc).Each section contains approximately 30 full-color, well-photographed tongues representing the pattern.This makes it easy to see the range of tongue signs for each pattern.Also, the description of the tongue, the patient's symptoms, Western diagnosis and Chinese diagnosis are printed next to the photo of the tongue for easy reference.(You don't have to flip back and forth between the text pages and the color plates, as in Maciocia's Tongue Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine.)This book isn't cheap, but the quality of the photographs and the clear description of the tongues makes it a very worthwile investment. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars The book is a mish mosh
It's too bad this book is a mish mosh and that neophytes in Chinese medicine are not going to know this. Some of the material is very standard and authentic, but a lot of it is the authors' own invention. So be careful with this. If you want the real deal, this is not the book you want. A better introduction to standard Chinese medicine is Kaptchuk's classic, The Web That Has No Weaver.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide to the Novice
I am a novice in the art of TCM and I do not speak or read chinese. This was an excellent guide for me in my studies in preparation to attend school for TCM and also how to get some practical benefit from my Chinese herbs. This was an Excellent Guide for the Novice.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to the tenets of TCM
I recommend this book to all of my clients! With so much focus being placed on alternative therapies in health care, it staggers me that so much of the general public still thinks that acupuncture is for idiots acting as a human pincushion. While it is far from an instruction manual (which was never its intent), Between Heaven and Earth gives laypeople a simplified and elegant explanation of an ancient science. If you're looking for a definitive education in TCM, go to a university and get a degree. If you want an introduction to wellness through Chinese Medicine, read this book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Voluminous (only slightly flawed) Mainstay
This book got short shrift in our education even though we bought in in the first year or two.4-0 out of 5 stars Still a worthwhile reference
When I was in college, we learned the ill-fated Chinese Acupuncture and Moxibustion for exams, but this was the book we actually used in acupuncture classes. We called it the "Shanghai book," as it is an abridged translation of a four-volume set, originally published in Chinese in 1962 by the Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, revised in 1974. Since most of our teachers were from Shanghai, this book was the favorite for teaching English-speaking students.Read more

While it necessarily falls short of its encyclopedic vision, Maciocia's latest will become an important reference, not only for those emphasizing women's medicine, but for anyone studying Chinese medicine theory.

Randine Lewis has taken all the most valuable information for any woman trying to conceive and condensed it into this extremely comprehensible and succinct book.Offering woman and incredible oppurtunity to heal themselves by understanding in depth how the body works and what they can do to support their fertility journey.I would highly recommend anyone wanting to conceive read this book.

After having a miscarriage at 8 weeks, and having waited for that pregnancy to happen for 12 years, I found comfort in researching as much as possible about dealing with the pain of my loss.

It is easy to read and has a step by step explanation on how to apply the Ancient Chinese Medicine and methods in your life-style to be successfully pregnant... naturally.

Shudo Sensei is a true gift to the Acupuncture community.It is rare to find and acupuncturist with such great skill and even more rare to find one who is willing to share his information and personal experiences so openly.Shudo Sensei provides a practical look at points which are commonly used and explains proper needling technique, location and indications.He still stresses the need for a proper root treatment, but also provides "symptomatic" uses for points, along with stories of personal experience.Steven Brown does an amazing job translating this book and makes me think that his skill as a translator is only matched by his abilities as an acupuncturist.If you want your acupuncture treatments become more effective you must read this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A true master
I have been fortunate enough to attend a seminar with Shudo Demei and his ease, technique and understanding of acupuncture blew me away.I highly reccomend this book to anyone who wishes to improve their abilities as an acupuncturist.Shudo Sensei fills the pages with alternative point locations, alternative uses for common points, case histories, and clinical experience.The information in these pages can be found no where else as Shudo Sensei himself has based the majority of this information off his many years of clinical experience.I must also thank Stephen Brown for his great work in translating this book.His translation skills are matched only by his skills as an acupuncturist. ...

Unschuld is a scholar, a genuine translator that doesn't leave much to the imagination.His understanding of the cultural contexts (as there are many) in which TCM grew are un-matched in terms of written text.Get his books, if not for the honest look he takes at TCM, but for the fact that his works are the bread and butter of TCM.The gross ignorance of the classics among so called "Doctors of TCM" in the western world is amazing.Don't guess about TCM, either learn to read Chinese or get good translations of the classics.Not pocket translations at a American grade five reading level.If we expect people to view us as Doctors, we should study like one.
5-0 out of 5 stars essential reading
This book is the most profound, deep work that has ever been done on this book. As practitioners of Chinese medicine we allways read and give attention to the two books of the Huang Ti Nei Ching,the Su Wen and the Ling Shu. The nan Ching is a must for every Chinese Medicine practitioner. This book gives many aspects that made me think again on theories and practical aspects that I use every day as teacher and practitioner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Eye opening and a blessing for your life
I truly agree with the review written by M. Savoie "waxnwane" (Bound Brook, NJ USA). I add that this book is like an owner's manual for the human body. I, too, went to a Holistic Massage School, and I thank the powers that be that I got this book from them! I am learning things from this book that I have not found (written or spoken) anywhere else. It is easy to use, and most of the ingredients can be found in your local grocery store (for the cleanses). I keep this book in plain site in my home, and anyone who asks me gets overwhelmed by my response. If you buy no other "health" book than this one, you have purchased the best one! Someone had to do it .... THANK YOU ELSON M. HAAS for writing this book!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars A great Guide
This is an easy book to read no complicated words just right to the point no misguiding information, plus it has everything you need from top to bottom. This is a reference book that I think is great for people who wish to learn about the 5 elements and chinese medicine. I recommend it to all types of people.

5-0 out of 5 stars User-Friendly and Empowering Book of Healing
I discovered this book as it was part of my curriculum in Holistic Massage Therapy School.But it is applicable to anyone who is looking to learn about holistic health self-care.Based on the Chinese 5-Element theory, Staying Healthy With The Seasons explores the particular energies, meridians, organs, moods, strongpoints and pitfalls of each season.It is easy to read, and pick and choose which ideas you like and would like to incorporate into new habits to try.There are so many ideas for each season, ranging from dietary cleansing, to mental patterns, to holistic bodywork recommended for the season, that you are bound to find some ideas that really appeal to you where you are now, and others you may like to try later.Read more
