This book is an excellent resource; I personally own several editions. It is very thorough, but aimed at herbal practitioners and medical professionals.

This next book is one of the definitive texts on Chinese Herbal Medicine, and highly recommended, if your interest is in Chinese herbs.

Between Heaven and Earth
If you want to explore the concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I highly recommend the book by Ted Kaptchuk
