When Bill Moyers visited China to explore the mysteries, and the healing potential, of Chinese medicine for his acclaimed PBS series "Healing and the Mind," he sought out David Eisenberg as his guide.

For every reader fascinated by the seemingly fantastical aspects of Chinese medicine, from acupuncture addiction to Qi Gong martial arts, this captivating book offers deeper and more detailed encounters with the physicians and patients, the mystics and the martial artists, who were featured on television.

Here is a sympathetic, yet objective appraisal of the concept of Qi (chee), the vital energy which is the unifying principle of Chinese medicine. Here are Chinese sages from the Yellow Emperor of 2700 B.C. to the very modern Dr. Fang, who remarks, "Acupuncture without Qi is only as effective as one man's sticking needles in another." And here are Chinese people from all walks of life as they seek relief, through a rebalancing of their Qi, their vital energy, for ailments from colds to cancer.

About the Author:

David Eisenberg lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

From Library Journal:

Eisenberg, a clinical research fellow at Harvard, has had several singular opportunities to observe Chinese medical practices, most notably as the first American medical exchange-student there. In this personal narrative, he introduces practitioners of acupuncture and herbalism, a blind itinerant masseur, psychic children, and master healers who perform incredible feats through the direction of Qi , the vital energy at the core of Chinese medical philosophy. Eisenberg has a keen eye for cultural differences and acknowledges the shortcomings of both ancient Chinese practices and Western allopathic medicine; he sees great potential in the merger of the two. For general and holistic health collections. Judith Eannarino, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.
