Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most useful, attractive, and interesting books on TCM that I have in my library. The writing is good and well organized, the illustrations are excellent and the photographs are worth ... well ... a thousand words.
IMHO, this is one of the most important books a student of TCM can have. I think it should be the 2nd book a TCM student buys. The first would be a good fundamentals book (such as Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine by Wiseman and Ellis).
Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This is a very comprehensive book on tongue diagnosis in TCM for evaluating health. It not only goes into the usual information on tongue color, color & thickness of coating, size & shape of the tongue, features (such as fissures), etc., it gives information on the exceptions to the general rules.
The book also goes into some detail on why and how tongue characteristics develop. Tongue swollen, teeth marks visible along the edges? Suspect Spleen problems because the Spleen is not performing its function of transporting fluids in the body.
No photograph adequately can capture all the subtleties of tongue diagnosis. But the extensive collection of photos in this book do a good job of indicating what is meant by a pale tongue, a red tongue, a swollen tongue, a thick or thin coating, etc.
I recommend this book for serious TCM students and for people who want to learn how health problems can be revealed by the tongue.
