You'd think that would be the title of an easily available book, right? But it isn't I thought it isn't. There's the Medical Chinese web site - very useful, to be sure - that some NYU medical students put together; I'm sure there are a number of other sites like it. Then, on the other end of the spectrum, are the thesauruses and dictionaries that are only useful for someone who already reads Mandarin fluently. But [I thought until now] there's no handbook that I could carry around.*
. . . I swear, I didn't start this post thinking I was going to advertise their book. But now they have one! I'll buy it tomorrow and review it here.
