Together with taking the pulse, observing the tongue forms an integral part of the "examination" which is needed to make a Chinese medical diagnosis. This Color Atlas is concise and to the point. The first half explains individual tongue characteristics and the second half combines these characteristics in real case studies, thus deepening the reader's understanding of tongue diagnosis. The clearly written text is augmented by high-quality, full-color images. With its compact and user-friendly form, this Color Atlas does not take up much space while at the same time containing a wealth of information which is interesting to both physicians (practitioners) of Chinese and western scientific medicine as well as for students of either. 162 color photographs show clearly the truth of a Chinese proverb which reads: Bai wén bù rú yi jiàn (it is better to see [something] once than to hear [it] a hundred times).

Dao of Chinese Medicine is the first Western text to shed light on the reality of the ancient healing arts of China, revealing that Chinese medical theories are based on important physiological findings. This is in contrast to the Western interpretation, popularized since the 1940s and 50s that Chinese medicine and acupuncture involve undefined energy and blood circulating through imaginary meridians. Unfortunately, the energy-meridian idea condemned Chinese medicine to be viewed in terms of metaphysical beliefs, limiting its acceptance into mainstream health care. It also led to a growing frustration to reinvent acupuncture in Western terms before understanding the true way (dao) of Chinese medicine. Dao of Chinese Medicine sets the record straight, explaining how ancient Chinese physicians developed a physiologically based medicine with the theories supported by human dissection studies and how Chinese medical theories are consistent with 21st century explanations about how acupuncture works.
