Together with taking the pulse, observing the tongue forms an integral part of the "examination" which is needed to make a Chinese medical diagnosis. This Color Atlas is concise and to the point. The first half explains individual tongue characteristics and the second half combines these characteristics in real case studies, thus deepening the reader's understanding of tongue diagnosis. The clearly written text is augmented by high-quality, full-color images. With its compact and user-friendly form, this Color Atlas does not take up much space while at the same time containing a wealth of information which is interesting to both physicians (practitioners) of Chinese and western scientific medicine as well as for students of either. 162 color photographs show clearly the truth of a Chinese proverb which reads: Bai wen bu ru yi jian (it is better to see [something] once than to hear [it] a hundred times).
