The Lakeside Master's Study of the Pulse
By Li Shi-zhen, translated by Bob Flaws. 4" x 6", 130 pages, paperback. One of the most concise and authoritative texts on the pulse within the Chinese literature. Compiled in the late Ming dynasty, Lakeside Master's Study of the Pulse is still used and regarded as one of the best primers on this important diagnostic modality. Written in meter and verse, this collection of poems was meant to be memorized, not just read.
