This book is the first English translation of a rare medieval Chinese manuscript with the full title Fǔxíngjué zàngfǔ yòngyào fǎyào (“Secret Tips for Helpful Action: The Key to Using Medicinals on the Zàngfǔ Organs”).

In addition to an elegant yet literal annotated translation of the complete text by Dr. Sabine Wilms, this book includes a lengthy scholarly introduction, analyzing the history of the text and its relationship to an ancient mythological Tāngyèjīng (“Classic of Decoctions”), with which it is sometimes wrongly identified.
