Praise for Humming with Elephants: A Translation and Discussion
“Humming with Elephants is a much-needed book in Chinese Medicine. Sabine Wilms is the best translator of ancient texts that I know. Her clarity, sincerity, and understanding of ancient Chinese texts is unparalleled. Her thoughtful and comprehensive explanations leave space in the readers’ minds, allowing them to absorb the philosophy behind the words.”
