From the back cover
For those who, like me, have a passionate interest in the integration and efficacy of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) alongside Western medicine in the real world, Dr. Lee's outlook and mastery is a vast treasure. This book is an important new addition to the TCM cannon in the English language. More than most titles currently available, this text provides application of TCM for challenging conditions and cases that will be welcomed by student and experienced practitioner alike.
The format of question and response between student and master is reminiscent of the classic writings of Chinese medicine and makes for compelling reading. Dr. Lee's replies to his student's questions demonstrate his eminently pragmatic, open-minded approach and his expansive knowledge of Western medicine. Following these moving case studies reveals Dr. Lee's thought process and his unique, innovative application of Chinese medicine to real medical problems - taking into consideration concurrent treatment with western medicine.
The dialogue takes us on the emotionally testing journey of a young TCM doctor as he overcomes doubts of his own abilities and that of TCM to successfully manage severe illnesses. In addition to clinical advice, the pastoral wisdom imparted by Dr. Lee to his student will no doubt be of great benefit to any developing practitioner.
The contents of this first volume demonstrate the breadth of Dr. Lee's repertoire, confidently treating diseases as diverse as SLE and brain neoplasms - I am sure that following volumes will be eagerly awaited.
The scholarly aptitude of the translation and extensive compilation of supplemental information is of such an exceptional standard that the essence of Dr. Lee's approach and method is accurately conveyed to the non-Mandarin speaker.
Overall, an extraordinarily well-crafted work of scholarly excellence!
