Liqing (Hunan Univ. of Chinese Medicine) has created a book that is both comprehensive and specific in its offering of how to harness the benefits of Chinese medicine to meet one’s health needs. The book draws from the author’s extensive background comprised of teaching and conducting scientific and clinical research studies related to traditional Chinese medicine. Reader benefits include gaining a broad sense of the ways in which each season has its own distinctive traits and associated health risks. This title isn’t meant to be a panacea for modern illnesses, but it does prescribe lifestyle tweaks based on science and historical wisdom.
VERDICT Well-organized, meticulously documented, and actionable. Readers will think differently about the interactions between their bodies, the seasons, and some holistic modalities of healing.
