Secrets of the Hidden VesselsNonfiction. This book clearly explains Chinese acupuncture. It describes which parts of the Nei Jing are fact based, metaphorical, or untrue; identifies the conflicting Nei Jing theories on metabolism, and which are true or untrue; and key concepts such as the Chinese medicine organ functions are also clearly explained in relation to contemporary physiology.

The book provides students or practitioners with an indispensible guide to properly understanding the Chinese medicine of the Nei Jing. And it also enables Chinese medicine to be explained to patients using terms they can understand.

Visayan-English DicionaryPublished in 1934, this was the first Visayan-English dictionary. It contains more than 18,000 words of the Hiligáynon and Hiniráya dialects as spoken in and around Iloilo, besides many Spanish words, which, being frequently used by the Visayans, have become part of the Visayan language. Collated by the REV. J. KAUFMANN, M.H.M, parish priest of Igbarás, Iloilo, Philippines.

Today, this dictionary remains one of the best Visayan-English Dictionaries; and is useful to both English students of Visayan, and also Visayan native speakers who require a dictionary of their own language with definitions in English.
