    Good stuff about Western medicine investigating Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).There's plenty of skepticism here, but it's not all from the author personally (he has a professional duty to consider, and his colleagues are skeptical, etc.).It's a good introduction to TCM for someone who's skeptical but curious, I imagine.

    Qi - pronounced "chee" with long e's means vital energy. Very interesting read, especially if you are interested in how acupuncture works, like I was. Makes you think about alternative medical therapies and if they work. Can the mind predictably alter the body in ways that change the course of health or illness.

    A little outdated, but a really interesting primer/introduction to TCM. I appreciated the MD view (and skepticism) of TCM principles, and there were some kick-ass tales of qi gong. That said, the author's insistence on "reproducible, objective results" and standardized double-blind placebo studies showed some of his ignorance or inability to fully grasp the principles on which TCM is founded.

    I have already read most of this book and it is pretty interesting. This is an American anthropologist who goes to China and writes on his experience with Chinese medicine. I love reading about his transformatation of thought from his Western training to Eastern philosophy.

    An older perspective, but still relevant in light of the incredulity of mainstream medicine, and interesting.

    To those interested in the scientific background of Qi this book is great! Eisenberg writes of his time spent in China in search of the scientific evidence of Qi.

    General overview of different aspects of Chinese medicine in the 1970's & 1980's, written in 1985. Easy to read. Learned quite a bit.

    OK. The book is from 85 and seems dated now. Personal experiences of first western student at Beijing traditional medicine is interesting.
