This is a must-have in a Chinese herbalist's library. -- Tina Chen, traditional Chinese medicine practitioner and co-author of Chinese Herbal Formulas and Applications
Clinical Handbook of Chinese Herbs is a unique desk reference for practitioners using Chinese herbs. In a concise and easy-to-read format, Will Maclean presents a large amount of clinically useful information about individual medicinal substance. The use of tables to summarize common applications of the medicinals allows one to see what symptoms a specific substance is particularly effective at addressing. Furthermore, the text contains information about the way that processing the medicinals changes their functions. This reference text is a valuable addition to the library of books that practitioners of Chinese herbal medicine will want to have on their office shelves. -- Craig Mitchell, EAMP, PhD, President of the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine
