By: Li Shi-zhen
Translated and Edited by: Bob Flaws
Compiled in the late Ming Dynasty, Li Shi-zhen’s Lakeside Master’s Study of the Pulse is still used and regarded as one of the best primers on pulse diagnosis. Although this translation has not retained the meter and verse of the original, it is a faithful rendering of Li’s actual words. This book is one of the most concise and authoritative texts on the pulse within the Chinese literature.
