    Excellent and inspiring book

    This book provides an excellent introduction to traditional chinese medicine. It covers everything from the basic philosophy to nutrition, exercise, and herbal remedies. The book is somewhat light on specifics--it's more of an introduction and needs to be supplemented by further reading. I highly recommend it.
