Format: Paperback
As a student and teacher of the Daoyin Yangsheng Gong system, I was looking forward to see what this book had to offer. It turns out to offer a whole lot of information and instruction on the two forms presented. The book has standing and seated versions of each exercise

Firstly, the book has been faithfully translated from Prof. Zhang's original texts with additions from and commentaries from some of his top students and coaches. It assumes some small knowledge of the theories of yin and yang, the five elements, internal organs and meridians but not too much and a lot of information is given to enable the reader to research the material further if needed (point names and numbers, names in Chinese and English etc).

The exercise sections begin with an introduction to the exercise and it's characteristics. It then moves on to the movement descriptions for practice and this is further divided into the movement explanation itself, the key points and the actions or effects that the movement induces. Following the complete movement explanations are the photographs to accompany the instructions on successive pages and I think it helps to have the photos all together rather than have to flick back and forth between split pages.

The combination of explanation and photographs should be more than adequate to give the reader the knowledge to perform the exercises but just in case there's any confusion at all, the book delivers a master stroke. Tucked into the cover at the back is a DVD which is double sided - PAL (European format) on one side and NTSC (American, or Region 1) on the other. The DVD shows the exercises performed in their entirety with visual reminders on focus and reference points on screen. The DVD also has Prof.

Don't fooled by simplicity of the movements. It is an internal art, will take years to master. Just go for it. It will be rewarding all the way.

... as the movements can be performed seated as well as standing and for this reason it certainly deserves the 'four' star rating and also it is good value being an instructional book containing a DVD.

Now, as I start to prepare the review in my mind I feel four stars are a little too generous because the instructions could definitely be better, both for the DVD and within the book! I've needed to make a couple of pages of notes to use with the DVD as this doesn't contain the full or even a suitable amount of instruction. The book, one needs to keep referring to, has various appendixes detailing the Chinese terms and practices instructed in the main text. Therefore, the instructions in the book are difficult to follow.

After a few attempts at following the DVD I'm not sure how useful the practices are because I still need to regularly pause the DVD to know what should be done according to the lengthy notes so necessary to follow it.

Not the best Qi Gong book/DVD on the market.
