by Kirschbaum, published by Eastland Press The Atlas of Chinese Tongue Diagnosis by Kirschbaum, published by Eastland Press is the tongue diagnosis book that I have been waiting for. It makes every other one out there virtually obsolete ( I have them all and I mean that). Mainly because it uses current photographs of Western people (some Chinese), the types we are likely to see in the clinic, and gives the pathological condition associated with the person’s photograph (whew! why didn’t anyone think of that). There are multiple pages of various types of cold, damp tongues. Many different ways that yin deficient tongues may appear, etc. My Western herbalists friends will get a lot from this book as well, since I think most of the Chinese jargon can be readily understood from the perspective of a Western herbal practice.
