David Eisenberg lives in Boston, Massachusetts.From Library Journal:
Eisenberg, a clinical research fellow at Harvard, has had several singular opportunities to observe Chinese medical practices, most notably as the first American medical exchange-student there. In this personal narrative, he introduces practitioners of acupuncture and herbalism, a blind itinerant masseur, psychic children, and master healers who perform incredible feats through the direction of Qi , the vital energy at the core of Chinese medical philosophy. Eisenberg has a keen eye for cultural differences and acknowledges the shortcomings of both ancient Chinese practices and Western allopathic medicine; he sees great potential in the merger of the two. For general and holistic health collections. Judith Eannarino, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.
