?  About our Ebooks


The most important classical text of Chinese Medicine, The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Chinese Medicine is often seen as daunting by students who are faced with a variety of different translations, of which some may not be reliable. This introductory guide makes it accessible to all, providing a summary of each chapter which emphasises the clinical relevance of the text.

The author draws out how the text can be used to inform and improve clinical practice. It avoids overly scholarly discussions, and does not dwell on the minutiae of translation, making this book an easy and enlightening read.


'Although the Neijing is arguably the most influential text in the history of Chinese medicine, it is one often unread and unexamined by modern clinicians. As a teacher of the Neijing, what I've found lacking is a book that summarizes the text - a book that draws out the marrow of the contents and presents it in a user-friendly way. Dr. Chang's book will fill this gap in providing readers an overview of each of the chapters in the Neijing Suwen. By providing a focused look at the chapters' key aspects, Chang provides newcomers with an easy entry into study, and experienced readers of the Neijing a quick reference to the essentials.'
- Dr. Henry McCann, Doctoral Faculty for the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, Director for the Institute for Classical Asian Medicine
