looking herbs you see in a Chinatown apothecary? Wonder

60 herbs as you see them in herb shops, together with the
history, principles and practice of TCM, make this book
an accessible introduction to Chinese herbal medicine as
it is practiced today. Also

color for each of 62 commonly used herbs, including
ginger, soybeans, cannibus, as well as the more exotic
ingredients such as turtle shell, deer antlers, seahorse,
and praying mantis egg cases. Also included in this
concise volume are soup and tea recipes, a simple
introduction to the theories behind Traditional Chinese
medicine, and an index of English, Chinese (both Mandarin
and Cantonese pronunciations), and Latin names.
