by Michael Tierra L. A. OMD, AH. OMD, AHG. I recently picked up a treasure of a book entitled Chinese Herbal Medicines: Comparisons and Characteristics, by Yifan Yang, published by Churchill Livingstone (2002). While many books that have attempted to do this are confusing, Yifan’s book unintentionally offers a valuable template as a kind of ‘checks and balances’ for understanding how to classify and use non-Chinese herbs within the timeless Chinese herbal system. Chinese Herbal Medicines appropriately makes no attempt towards a cross-cultural understanding of Chinese physiology and Western scientific physiology.

It is a challenge to learn and retain information about the characteristics of the hundreds of commonly used Chinese herbs, as well as to select the best herbs for use in treating patients. This book brings to life, through vivid and clear discussion, the characteristics of the commonly used Chinese herbs.

  • I am in my second year of TCM school and ordered this book at the suggestion of one my classmates. It's a great book, but I had to return it for one strange reason - the copy I received from Amazon, although it was brand new and bound in hardback like the version I had seen in person, appeared to be some kind of bootleg copy where the pages were run off in black and white on poor quality paper. This would have been okay except for the fact that the graphs which appear at the end of each section need to appear in COLOR in order to be read clearly. Having a black and white version rendered this aspect of the book useless. A true printing of this book should have glossy pages and RED ink - not sure what was going on with the version I received. I may try the Kindle version to see if it shows up in color, because I do want this book for my studies - but I'm not willing to pay full price for an inferior copy.

  • This book teaches in a very conversational comparative style. I use this, Holmes and Bensky's Materia Medicas to study. This book really helps me understand the herb actions versus just rote memorization of the Materia Medica

  • I was so lost in my first year of herbs trying to memorize each one in Bensky until I bought this book. What a life changer! It really helps a new student understand the herbs relationship to its category, meridians and tastes so it makes it VERY easy to understand why an herb does what it does. Wohoooo!! I get it!! FINALLY that aha moment!!

  • I found this book to be very useful at differentiating the various herbs within a category. I am a TCM practitioner, but feel that this book would be very valuable for the student as well as the professional. It is clear and concise. The explanations are thoughtful and useful, and the comparisons really help to narrow down exactly which herb would be the best choice when trying to create a formula (strength, taste, temp, etc). I have many herbal books, but I tend to turn to this one most frequently when really trying to understand what makes each herb stand out from the rest.

  • I'm a recent graduate of a master's-level oriental medicine program, and have generally had a hard time finding well translated, coherent discussions on Chinese herbal medicine. This book presents comparisons of commonly used medicinals in a conversational, easily approachable format, and I found it to be very helpful to fill in some of the gaps in my understanding of this system. Definitely worthwhile!

  • This is the most expensive book yet the best book on Chinese Herbal Medicines (CHM) I ever own. It covers in depth detail characteristic of different herbs similar in characters and how to use them a lone or in a formula. I have a lot of CHM books but this one is probably the most useful book available out side of Chinese language. It is really worth the money and I am happy to have it in my herbal book case.

  • This was a gift and was deeply appreciated.

  • I love this book because it is an easy reference to read. I wish I had this book when I was in school.
