By: Wang Shu-He
Translated by: Yang Shou-Shong
The Mai Jing or Pulse Classic was written in the late Han dynasty by Wang Shu-he. It is the first book in the medical literature devoted entirely to pulse diagnosis, and as such is considered a foundation text for anyone interested in understanding the rationale for and methods of reading the pulse in Chinese medicine. Although complex, this book is a mine of valuable information for those wishing to delve more deeply into the study of the pulse.
