This unique book explores the ineffable essence of the spirits through an amazing and varied set of stories which stimulate the reader to a deeper understanding of this aspect of the heritage of Chinese medicine.

As a practitioner of Chinese Medicine, I found that reviewing this book was not just a matter of overviewing the text, but also a learning experience, in which things I already knew were presented in such a way as to provide a different level of understanding. -- The Herbalist
