Classical Chinese Medical Texts: Learning to Read the Classics of Chinese Medicine Vol III
I love these books - they seem to me to be some of the clearest texts on the way Classical Chinese is used in the medical tradition. I have all three. I have used other texts on Classical Chinese which have all be useful - these however make what is happening clear and applicable in many situations, not simply in medical works. My thanks to the author.
