This revised edition of Maclean's classic Clinical Handbook of Chinese Herbs is an extensive and detailed guide to the medicinal properties of traditional Chinese herbs, and how they should be prescribed in today's medical practice. The handbook employs comparative charts to help clinicians to select the optimal medicinals for their patients. Each table outlines the characteristics of a group of herbs, including extensive indications with relative strengths of action and function, the domain, flavour, nature, and dosage guidelines. The book also caters for special circumstances in health that may alter a patient's requirements, with appendices giving need-to-know instructions for a number of specific cases.

Easy-to-use and comprehensive, the handbook will facilitate efficient comparative reference, as well as detailing the fine points of discrimination.

This is a must-have in a Chinese herbalist's library. -- Tina Chen, traditional Chinese medicine practitioner and co-author of Chinese Herbal Formulas and Applications
Clinical Handbook of Chinese Herbs is a unique desk reference for practitioners using Chinese herbs. In a concise and easy-to-read format, Will Maclean presents a large amount of clinically useful information about individual medicinal substance. The use of tables to summarize common applications of the medicinals allows one to see what symptoms a specific substance is particularly effective at addressing. Furthermore, the text contains information about the way that processing the medicinals changes their functions. This reference text is a valuable addition to the library of books that practitioners of Chinese herbal medicine will want to have on their office shelves. -- Craig Mitchell, EAMP, PhD, President of the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine
