5.0 étoiles sur 5Best Reference for its Niche, but consider the DVD multimedia version.28 mars 2009

A very well conceived, comprehensive and organized text of acupuncture, for the whole journey from beginning to advanced practice. It provides a very rich and in depth summary of information about each point, both in terms of modern usage and plus selected highlights from the classical chinese texts. There is more specific detail on each point in this manual than I have found in any other source, including for the extra points. It is a delightful resource to just read. The language is clear, straightforward and does not bog down in overly heavy detail either. It is well enough organized to assist in problem solving for particular conditions.
But, I recommend searching a little further and considering an even richer treasure -- the DVD multimedia verison of this same Manual. It contains everything in the printed text plus some additional enhancements. On the DVD, it is generally easier to appreciate the organization of points by their meridians, their inter-relationships and to follow well-designed sections detailing out the anatomy of critical landmarks such as the spinous processes, ribs, and other bony landmarks. Both the text and DVD contain thorough coverage on precautions to take when needling near organs. Both have extensive charts, historical information and cross-referencing by indications.
The interactive study tools in the DVD version and the ability to construct your own practice tests, as well as the ease of computer-added search make the digital version my favorite over the printed text.
One Caveat: It is important to know that the DVD employs frustrating DRM limitations which require that the user keep the DVD in their disk drive anytime they want to use the program. I find this intermittently slows down acquisition of a link and occasionally necessitates rebooting the entire computer due to some odd hangup. Printed texts fortunately bypass these irritations.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Improved Graphics28 août 2007
Par B. Lawrence - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Deadman text is required by most TCM schools. If you have the previous version and already know your points this version might not be needed, you can always get the new CD when it comes out. If you are still learning then the illustrations are improved, making it easier to locate the exact location of a point.
There have been some corrections made to known errors in the previous edition.
Other than that the biggest difference is that the cover is now orange instead of black.

5.0 étoiles sur 5A precious Text for Acupuncture practitioner26 janvier 2010
Par Thanittra Kijitti - Publié sur Amazon.com
What I love about this text is that it is a professional Acupuncture textbook. It has a clear illustration and picture of the acupoint and the meridian. It also has the name of the point with Chinese Character. The content is sorted in orderly and easy to search or study. The print paper is thick and nice this makes the textbook look serous and precious which I love. The one I have is black cover so it looks grace. This book also contains many diseases & symptoms and tells what acupoints should be used for treatment (in TCM we call acupuncture prescription). Only what I feel it should improve is that some acupoints are shown by female explicit expression such as the breast. I personally think that is not necessary. The other thing is that this book neither has Ear Acupuncture nor Moxibustion like what acupuncture textbook should. You may need extra book for these two parts I mentioned as they are very useful in clinic as well.

3.0 étoiles sur 5Good content bad binding6 novembre 2008
Par anonymous - Publié sur Amazon.com
I generally agree with the positive reviews of the content, save for the needle depths in some cases are possibly too deep. However, for such an expensive book, it should not fall apart in 3 months or less. The hard cover completely fell off mine and the book split in half. Other people I know have not had the same problem, but a high percentage of those books look like they will within short order.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Great Book28 juin 2012

This is a great book. It is packed with almost 700 pages of info that is laid out so you can find what you are looking for easily and quickly. The photos and descriptions how to find the specific points are excellent. Even though it's pricey it's work every dollar: probably the best text available, anywhere. I'd give it more stars if possible.
