A masterfully written companion commentary of the essential pulse chapters in the Nàn Jing. It reminds us to reshape and further develop our understanding of vessel dynamics and architecture as they relate to time, space and breath motion.

The value of time - taken to understand the landscape of a patient's health - is irreplaceable and nowhere is this truer than in pulse diagnosis. With deep insight and vast clinical experience, Z'ev Rosenberg reflects on the qualitative nature of one of our most important diagnostic tools. He reveals the depth of this foundation text as well as its relevance in contemporary practice. With the increasing integration of Chinese medicine into the mainstream, the tradition of such commentary has never been more important.

Z'ev Rosenberg has distilled decades of clinical and textual ruminations into a concise and very readable guide. Taking up the tradition of classical commentary, the reader is given a seat at the table while an experienced clinician engages the pulse sections of the Nàn Jing while also taking note of commentary over the centuries. For someone like myself who always has more to learn about pulse diagnosis, it is a pleasure to see questions that have come up for me answered from the perspective of the modern clinic. Concepts which seem opaque in the original text come to life when applied in case studies and pulse descriptions. This is a fine example of classical concepts translated for today's practitioner.
