AUTHORS: Dr. Bruce Robinson
Bruce Robinson and Blue Poppy have done a fine job with their new Second Edition of: Biomedicine: A Textbook for Practitioners of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
This is a one of a kind, "must have" for all practitioners of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. It is called a textbook, but is so much more. It is a book that all practitioners should have on hand for frequent reference. It covers all of the most important and most clinically encountered biomedical systems and problems. It is superbly organized, and perfectly succinct and to the point. It covers just the right amount of detail for each system covered.
The change to paperback formatting allows it to be more comfortable to hold and easier to carry. There is much new and additional material in this new edition and it is relevant, thorough and up to date.
Great book! I highly recommend!
