This is the best introductory book to Classical medical Chinese I have found so far. It is friendly in its size, concise and clear, especially the grammar notes. Each chapter has just the right amount of information making learning Chinese a less daunting task compared to other books out there.
There is no emphasis on writing so if you want to learn how to write characters this is not the book for you.
Things that could be improved: make a little bit clearer where the texts are taken from (rather than just having it in the index) and a bit of polishing up from a visual point of view. But overall it is a great book and I am looking forward to the second one.
