Aug 03, KL Dilley rated it it was amazing. Please dear friends wish me luck on my herb comps next week! This is an amazing resource, I just wish there was any possible way to read this in bed. I could seriously injure myself with this tome if I did that! View 1 comment. Jan 29, Shelly rated it really liked it Shelves: herbs. Great Reference for Chinese Herbs. Mar 06, Justin rated it it was amazing Shelves: herbal. This book is not for everyone.

It is not for me. I think that someone who knows more about TCM than I do will be able to do something with herbal actions that talk about wind, dampness and fire. I do think that this will be a wonderful resource for those who understand it and that is why I rate it highly.

Mar 01, Ernest Valverde marked it as to-read. Great infos! Excellent foundation resource. Not only is it exhaustive and well-organized, but the breadth of information and its clarity make it the must-go reference in Chinese Herbology in the West. I love this book, and carry it around with me everywhere I go that I might need to look up an herb. Cannot praise it highly enough. Having studied with notes from teachers and other books, this is always the one I go to.

Jan 27, Nicole rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fiction , chinese-medicine. An amazing resource.

It is a good book for beginners, the dosages for the formulas are wrong and should never be used.. A bit heavy , should be print in a pocket size. Mar 12, Sally marked it as to-read.
