The product of decades of research, this work represents one doctor's personal and professional quest to explore the rich healing traditions of the East, and to learn how the transmission of knowledge from teacher to student helped define the course of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine.

"This wonderfully readable and accessible book is particularly important because it helps our standards-driven culture understand a medicine based on lineage." Robert M.Duggan, Meridians.

"A product of monumental research into the tale of how acupuncture has been transmitted from East to West." European Journal of Oriental Medicine.

"Traces acupuncture through Chinese antiquity with a very readable clarity absent in other scholarly accounts of the same material. This story blossoms in the 20th century convergence of acupuncture traditions in Europe, and stands as the only articulate comprehensive account of this migration." American Academy of Medical Acupuncture Review.
