5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thorough...a bit pricy, but well worth the expense. 9 décembre 1998
Par emoore@ucrac1.ucr.edu - Publié sur Amazon.com
As a Ph.D. student in biochemistry I have sought out critical references that would be accurate and legitimate treatises on the biochemistry and pharmacology of herbs. If one is truly interested in understanding the biochemistry and pharmacology of Chinese herbs, then this is the reference to purchase. Very intelligently presented in a concise scientific journal format, presenting critical and relevant studies on the herbs as they are currently understood with many references to the original research papers. I would certainly purchase other titles similar to this if their coverage of other herbs (e.g. South American, Ayurvedic) were as comprehensive, relevant, and credible as this one. Not for the herbologist interested in a hokey metaphysical distortion of truth. Ideal for the intelligent and/or educated layman that really wants to know what compounds are present in various Chinese herbs and what their activities are.
Pitfalls: Some listings are very brief (less than a page) For instance the discussion of Centella asiatica is only 1/2 page and listed under antipyretic herbs and makes no mention of nootropic effects if they, in fact, exist-Nobody's perfect.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Concise guide to the scientific base of major herbal drugs 10 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Very outstanding among the books on chinese herbs written in English (to be fair, many better books in Chinese exist but not well translated!)
Starting from the chemistry and ending with the toxicology, each important herbs included are presented in a well-balanced format; the therapeutic values are thus projected clearly on the empirical grounds.
The new edition is an updated gist of those related scientific works done but could not be tracked on the great MedLine due to the language barrier.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Actually, I love this book (just can't afford it--and also waiting for 3rd edition) 3 novembre 2013
Par Francis Scott - Publié sur Amazon.com
I keep checking Dr Huang's text out from our school library and photocopying different chapters. I nearly have enough to bind for my own private copy. (Is this a copyright infringement?)

This book is truly an AMAZING compendium of information. I would spring for the hefty price had not a full 25 years passed since its publication. I know of nothing else even close to it in English language publishing. (If you do, please tell me!)

Here is a sample of some of the fascinating (and potentially clinically useful) factoids (that you will find nowhere else, at least in the English language, to my knowledge) I especially appreciated:

Yi Mu Cao
Small doses stimulate the heart;
Large doses will "inhibit" it.

Dang Gui
Water-soluble and nonvolatile components cause stimulation;
Alcohol-soluble components relax the uterus.

Du Zhong
In low doses it dilates peripheral blood vessels;
In high doses it causes VASOCONSTRICTION.

Ju Hua
Alcohol-based extract has antihypertensive effect;
Water-based extract DOES NOT

Wu Wei Zi
Antagonizes the CNS effects of caffeine

And, oh, there is so much more.

Dr Huang, maybe we could all get together and CROWD SOURCE funding for you to produce a 2015 edition? (Hey, they did it for the Halloween parade.)

Frightfully expensive. I can't believe I paid that much. I have owned this book for more than a decade. Its worth has proven invaluable. I only wish there was a third edition on the way as surely more reasearch has been done on traditional Chinese phramacopeaia. Wow wouldn't it be wonderful to have a version of this book dealing with both Ayur-Veda and Jamu (Java) pharmcopeaia

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not worth the money, Nothing you cannot find on pubmed.com 28 avril 2004

I'm shipping this book back. It isn't worth the price tag given the info it provides. It is basically a regurjitation of pubmed.com research and abstracts. In fact with some of the entries I can almost read verbatim the abstract that it references. (In general I find CRC press books too pricey)
