Once in a great while an extraordinary book is published that sets an entirely new standard in its field. A Manual of Acupuncture, published by Journal of Chinese Medicine Publications, is just such a book. Painstakingly researched over many years by Peter Deadman, editor-in-chief of The Journal of Chinese Medicine, and colleagues Mazin Al-Khafaji and Kevin Baker, this book has become the primary reference in the West for the study of acupuncture points and channels. With the subtle use of color to illustrate the acupuncture points and anatomical features, the new second edition of A Manual of Acupuncture is even more attractive and user-friendly than the first. Introductory chapters describe and illustrate the channels and collaterals, the various categories of points, and methods of selection, location, and needling. Ensuing chapters present each of the points of the 14 channels as well as the extra (miscellaneous) points, identified by their English and pinyin names, and Chinese characters. Each point is located in accordance with the most exacting anatomical standards to be found in any Western textbook. For each point there is a dedicated drawing, followed by regional body drawings. The quality of the 500 drawings is far superior to those in any other TCM text. There are also practical pointers for finding and needling the points, and cautionary information about what to avoid. In addition to point indexes by their English and pinyin names, there is an index identifying every part of the body reached by each of the channels, and separate indexes of point indications listed according to both TCM and biomedical symptoms.

In 1990, alongside my clinical practice of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine and my international teaching commitments, I began working on A Manual of Acupuncture, a hefty textbook of the acupuncture points, with Mazin Al-Khafaji Kevin Baker. Initially we thought it might take eighteen months to complete, but in fact it took eight years.
Mazin and I co-wrote the Chinese medicine portion of the book. Mazin translated point indications and comments from a whole variety of Chinese sources, which we compared with available English language texts. Then together we began the lengthy process of ordering, digesting and cross-referencing this information, and finally creating the point commentaries which are an important feature of the book.
Kevin Baker and I spent almost three years writing the anatomical point locations, location notes and needling instructions - again consulting numerous texts. Kevin¡¯s achievement in coming second in the country in his anatomical examinations for membership of the Royal College of Surgeons and his three years of acupuncture studies made him the ideal partner for this work. I had a clear image in my mind of the kind of illustrations we wanted and spent many hours trawling through bookshops looking at medical books. Finally I struck lucky and tracked down Kevin Marks, a wonderful medical illustrator, who produced the elegant and old-fashioned drawings that grace the Manual. I then spent a couple of years adding on the points and location information to these drawings, aiming for the clearest and most user-friendly illustrations.
Since we had decided to self-publish, it was also necessary to become competent in typography, book design and layout, paper and bindings.
A Manual of Acupuncture has established itself as the primary acupuncture points text throughout the English speaking world. Alongside the textbook we have also produced a boxed set of cards for ease of learning, and a CD-ROM for ease of reference and searching.
