This Chinese-English edition of Wang Bing's compilation of the Nei Jing Su Wen Ling Shu includes Wang Bing's preface, the Su Wen (Plain Questions) in 81 chapters, and the Ling Shu (Spiritual Pivot) in 81 chapters. Though the translators could have made good use of a native English-language editor, and though arguably their terminological choices could have been explicitly stated, the work is nevertheless an ambitiously executed effort and should be of great use to students and practitioners alike. The juxtaposition of Chinese and English text simplifies the task of readers who wish to verify or compare an English word selection with a Chinese character.
