REVIEW: Oriental Medicine: "As this translation demonstrates, Huang-fu Mi still has much to teach us."
Journal of Chinese Medicine (UK):"This translation took four years and is a stunning accomplishment to a layman who has only a jaw-dropping appreciation of the difficulties of translating classical Chinese. The translation relies primarily on Wiseman's glossary of Chinese medical terms, with some departures. This seems to work quite successfully... I hope every college library will buy one or more copies..."
Shiatsu School of Canada Alumni Guild Newsletter, November, 1994, p. 9: "This book is a major work and must be considered as a classic of acupuncture requiring serious study and integration. Clinical application based on classical principles raises the level of sophistication of practice as well as providing a framework for progress and advancement to the highest level... The translation of this text is lavishly embellished by numerous footnotes by the translators, both elaborating on elements discussed in the main body (of the text) as well as for the purpose of clarifying ambiguities from intention in the core text... The index of this book provides a great assistance in referencing and relating clinical conditions and their discussion in the 12 books of this classic."
