Ancient Chinese Medical Theory 101: Which Nèi Jīng Translation Should I Buy?

Ever since I completed my doctoral research on the Huáng Dì Nèi Jīng, students and colleagues have been asking me which translation of this medical classic they should buy. I always preface my answer with: “That depends on what you are looking for…” Rather than describe the individual merits of each translation, I created a practical flowchart, complete with hyperlinks to where they can be purchased. I would like to thank everyone who has shown interest in my research, in the Huáng Dì Nèi Jīng, and in ancient Chinese medicine. The images below are a sampling of the translations available in English. Consult this flowchart to determine which one is right for you!
