More Detail than You'll Ever Need

Itís a weighty book and certainly stands out on the shelf. But itís not one Iíve referred to over-frequently since I bought it a few months ago. The author, Li Shizhen (but not THAT Li Shizhen), examines approximately 80 acupuncture points in immense detail. Over a dozen pages are devoted to each point: history of the point is discussed, such as origins of the name and references within classical texts clinical indications, actions and applications are reviewed case histories are given point combinations are mentioned and even Chinese poems are translated.

There is a lot of very good information within this book but, for most of us, it's probably more data than we need. Definitely one for the serious TCM anoraks!
