I bought this bought about a month ago and even though I have not read it completely I am fairly familiar with it now, so here's my review.

I approached the book as a "teach yourself acupressure" guide, being aware of the limitations of this approach. I am acquainted with yoga and meditation techniques, and a just over the average human anatomy knowledge, but I haven't had any contact with traditional chinese medicine so far.

The printing and binding is fairly good. It is paper back but the cover looks resilient. It is printed in quality paper (maybe too white?), which is a plus for a book that is more a look-up manual than a read and store story. The illustrations are black and white, and even though I would like a little bit more of detail some times, they are helpful in general. All the Strange Vessels and Meridians have their points illustrated on a standing human figure, relating to both the major skeletal and muscular body references. Specific points like Meridian source points are illustrated on local figures of hands and feet. Later chapters dealing, for instance, with jaw, head and neck tension also have specific head illustrations to help find the right spot for the points.

The book covers a fairly good amount of theory, as well as giving practical examples to be applied "as-is". My feeling at this point is that there is enough background to understand why the offered release patterns work, and to gain enough insight as to develop your own practice. Furthermore, there are plentiful quotations to other sources, which gives the text a more scientific flavour, and allows the reader to check other opinions.

Now with the downsides. As a total beginner in the subject, I found it difficult to find my way through the book. Different chapters are written by different authors, and while the overall structure of the book seems reasonable, useful knowledge is sometimes scattered accross different sections, or duplicated (better this than spread out...). For instance, chapter 3 explains what seems to be one of the major foundations of the method: Strange Flows. It explains how they regulate Qi and how they interconnect the meridians. However it is not until chapter 4 that the meridians are actually explained. Even then, there are constant references to later chapters 10-21, which not only contain more in-depth explanations of a given meridian, but also general theory which, in my opinion, should be covered earlier in the book.

My biggest critique is with the numbering method itself. The book develops a new numbering system for the points, and it includes the equivalent chinese numbering for cross-reference with other sources, which is a good thing. Early on in the book the basic points of the system are introduced, including their location and function. However, later chapters introduce further points in a non-systematic way. Many specific release patterns include points that are not explained anywhere else than the section of the pattern, and some of them do not even include a textual explanation of their location. This makes me wonder whether the new numbering is useful at all. In any case I find that a complete index with all the points that appear in the book - and not only the basic fifty five points - would be very useful.

All in all, I find the book very interesting, with a lot of content, but lacking a little bit of structure.

Good section on theory and very good coveage of specific ailments. I also liked the combining of energy and psychology. Better than most books I have read on the subject.

The suggestions I have are

-a better index (benefits of points not listed)

-more info on preventatives
Jaberini
This book is very informative and gives excellent descriptions of the points and thier uses.
Zinnthi
Hard to get into. To scientific and long and somewhat boring. Not my favorite book on the subject. More of a text book than a "go to book" for practical. Better for serious students of the practice.Moderately recommended.

This is an important reference book for those interested in Dim Mak, the deadliest Chinese martial art.Knowing the acupressure/acupuncture points is the basis for the lethal strikes of this art as well as the healing aspects that are an important part of it

This material was collated some years ago, and although has some good conceptual stuff, has little practical value.

Iona Teagarden is the leader on the subject of Jin Shin Do. I found her stuff when I was a teenager after having taken an introductory class.

However, this book on Amazon dot com is overpriced. You can get it new directly from the Jin Shin Do Foundation for $30.00

It should be noted that this is not a book for beginners. If you don't have the original book you will need it. Luckily it seems to be readily available. "Acupressure Way of Health: Jin Shin Do" should be your primary source and this is book is a bit more advanced.
If I could carry only one book to get me through love, trauma, injury, recovery; in other words,life, THIS would be the one!

Accurate, easy to understand and apply, this is the one book to own in order to understand and benefit from acupressure. Iona Teeguarden, as psychotherapist and founder of Jin Shin Do Bodymind Acupressure is a brilliant teacher, author and guide.

Don't leave home without this book!
