Review

Format: Paperback
I have mixed feelings on this book.Firstly,It is my understanding that it was written as a kind of compilation of ancient knowledge,training keys and'secrets'in order to understand the concept of the muscle/tendon changing,brain/bone marrow washing classics.Do not approach this book as a 'how to'.Especially frustrating was the lack of specifics governing the small circulation training which is repeatedly stressed as the premier means to accomplish the higher level chigung practices.In the area of commentary,Dr.Yang provides very intersting transliterations and explantions of chinese writing and idealogy.The pictures remain useful throughout the book and the grand circulation exerices are good and useful and the sexual hormone chigung is extremely informative and usable it would be a good idea for the prospective reader to cross train or learn of other systems before tackling the Yi Gin Ching namely because it is conceptually different than the average chigung book.I applaud Dr.Yang for researching so much and praise his commentary .It is a good and usefulbookprovided you already have a working level of chigung knowledge and practice under your belt

Format: Paperback
I agree with the previous review: this is not for beginners. I found this book deep and complicated, and the training is certainly not within the reach of the most common of us. However, not only is it very well written, it offers a wealth of information, which is probably very hard to find from other sources. Master Yang writes clearly and without prejudice, he offers his opinion and interpretations of the ancient classics, translations, illustrations and photographs and the entire book becomes a fluid read from cover to cover. To learn a better base for this book however, do check out "The Root of Chinese Qigong", by the same author, it's especially important because of the small circulation as the previous reader mentioned, as well as other key concepts not presented in this book, since it much more profound and infers you already know something about qigong.

Considerably better researched, annotated, and illustrated then others. Some information in this volume is incredibly difficult to get hold of (thats one thing) but to express it in such a way that is SO accesable to the 'every day' person is really quite special. Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming activley encourages us to question scientifically the information we recieve, therefore making sense of it for ourselves and (if we're lucky and look deep enough) perhaps find more pieces to the 'puzzle' of a complete Qigong training routine. The first edition was published in 1989!, (I can't believe i'm coming to this so late, some of the info is HUNDREDS of years old) get it, read it, read it again, one more time, see what happens. A basic grounding in Qigong and a good teacher of Tao Yin or Tai Chi would certainly be very helpfull to get the full amount of information and so is not really suited to the absolute beginner. But for my money, the best book of it's kind out there... at the moment.
Thank you Dr.

This book is not worth the paper it is written on. It all starts with profanation and talks that you have to practice 100 days in row to get any results. Most of the book is just water and some historic references absolutely non-practical. You have to ever decide, write a real book on real qiqong for those who are developing, or write historic documentary style for average people.

The author does not seem to have qualification or power to teach or write about Qiqong.

Very interesting approach on qigong theory and practise. Recommend reading 'the Root of Chinese Qigong' first, by the same author.
