Skya Abbate's latest book belongs in the library of beginning acupuncture students as well as seasoned practitioners. It begins with the basics, but quickly dives deeply into more complex strategies to treat common ailments that aren't always what they appear to be. Ms. Abbate reminds us to always look below the surface and acknowledge the root.
