Each of the 27 pulse states is compared to associated pulses according to their relation to the cun, guan and chi positions. The significance of each pulse in practice is described. The appendices present a Pinyin and character glossary and tables of information for easy reference for all standard pulses. Nearly 80 illustrations of pulse types are included, graphically represented as "waves," following standards used in China. The combination of text and graphics makes this the most accessible reference to understanding Chinese pulse diagnosis.
