Most books on Traditional Chinese Medicine are first written in Chinese and then translated into English. Acupuncture in Clinical Practice however, is a collaboration between a Chinese author proficient in both TCM and English, and an American English consultant proficient in Chinese. Dr Bai is both a lecturer and a practising acupuncturist, and has taught students from over twenty countries, including the United States of America, Sweden, Britain and Austria. A great deal of the material presented in this book has not previously been published in English, and the author has managed to produce a text that successfully combines both the traditional and modern approaches. Although primarily intended as an advanced book for those who have already mastered the basic knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the practical and easy-to-use layout will also make it attractive to students and novice practitioners.
