About the Author:

He is Visiting Associate Professor at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has many years of experience in teaching and practice. Giovanni trained initially in the UK and then in China, learned Chinese to be able to study from original Chinese texts, and was one of the first practitioners and authors to introduce Chinese medicine in a clear and accessible way to a Western student audience.

Review:

"This well laid-out book with excellent texts is easy to use, and suitable for Chinese medicine students and practitioners. To quote from another new book edited by Hugh MacPherson, Acupuncture Research, ‘One of the key characteristics of a profession is the ownership of a unique body of knowledge that informs professional practice and is constantly reviewed, renewed and augmented by the profession itself.’ This beautifully presented text by Maciocia has clearly achieved this outcome." Australian Journal of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

"This book is one of the most authentic and comprehensive in print and will prove to be an invaluable resource for practitioners of Chinese medicine." Embody Magazine, summer 2009
