Review:

Chinese Herbal Formulas and Applications is great. I am amazed by how much work must have gone into it. I love the sections on pharmacology, clinical research, and interactions with drugs. The authors comments enhance the book a lot, as do the comparisons between formulae. It is refreshing to have a Chinese medicine book that has terminology that is easy to read and flows well. Congratulations on a monumental work. Giovanni Maciocia, C.Ac. (Nanjing). --Giovanni Maciocia, C.Ac. (Nanjing).

John Chen and Tina Chen have shown reverence for the historical treasures of Chinese Medicine and are a worthy conduit in transmitting these insights to present and future generations of medical practitioners. This major reference work offers insights for even the most experienced clinician as well as the beginning practitioner. It combines the highest level of scholarship and clinical application and is a major contribution to the ongoing growth of Chinese Medicine. This work provides a research-based milestone in the continuing integration of ancient and traditional Eastern medicine and modern Western medicine. Steven Rosenblatt, M.D., Ph.D., L.Ac. --Steven Rosenblatt, M.D., Ph.D., L.Ac.
