This book is a completely new, revised, and expanded edition of this work. It now includes:
- Many more important and useful statements of fact
- Chinese characters for every statement
- Pinyin Romanization for every statement
- Bob Flaws's commentary explaining the clinical meaning of each statement
At last, what every TCM student has been looking for, a linguistically accurate, succinct list of the key statements of fact in TCM which, as a style of Chinese medicine, is largely a word game. However, to be effective at playing the game, one needs to know the words. Hopefully, this book will help Western students gain both clarity and proficiency in the process and practice of doing TCM."
