Pocket Atlas of Tongue Diagnosis

Schnorrenberger & Schnorrenberger

The first half of this book explains individual tongue characteristics, and the second half combines these characteristics in real case studies, thus deepening the reader’s understanding of tongue diagnosis. The clearly written text is augmented by 162 high-quality, full-colour images. With its compact and user-friendly form, this colour atlas does not take up much space while at the same time containing a wealth of information which is valuable to both physicians (practitioners) of Chinese and western scientific medicine as well as for students of either.
