“Drs. John McDonald and Joel Penner have done great work putting together essential material for students of Traditional Chinese Medicine in “Zang Fu Syndromes: Differential Diagnosis and Treatment”. The whole book is organized by the Five Phase energetics in a very lucid manner and each element is discussed extremely well with herbal and acupuncture information. It is also a very “kind” and user-friendly book in the sense that one does not need another book or dictionary to make it usable. In other words, it’s got everything available for each formula and syndrome. Besides all of those features, the index is an absolute gem. I highly recommend this book, not only for students but also for professionals of Traditional Chinese medicine as a companion on Zang Fu problems.”

“The development of Acupuncture in the west has been dependent upon quality research and translation from original Chinese sources by dedicated persons over several hundred years. Drs. McDonald and Penner make a valuable contribution to this tradition by providing an excellent text for teachers and students, and a more than useful reference for established practitioners.”

“How students in the past got along without this book is mystifying. I have found it to be not only an essential book to have, but also one of the most used books in my library.”
