"In this overview of acupuncture techniques, Dr. Johns shows the application of Chinese medical theory to some of his own difficult cases, providing fascinating reading. This is a major contribution to the literature of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine."
"Not since Ted Kaptchuk’s magnificent The Web That Has No Weaver have we had as readable and clear a book about acupuncture. This is a growing, evolving Oriental medicine that is both infinitely simple and complex."
"Dr. John’s apprenticeship with a master practitioner shines through in his reverence for the artistry of diagnosis and treatment. A welcome reference text for all acupuncturists."
"Robert Johns draws from the knowledge of master acupunctuirst Dr. Andrew Tseng, the classics of Chinese medical literature, and his own empirical knowledge to show how theory combines with medical practice."
