On the face of it this book may appear to be expensive, but believe me (and I've bought and read a lot of books written by so called masters) THIS BOOK IS IN A LEAGUE ABOVE MOST OTHERS.
It is packed with both old and new information, all of which benefits from a clarity of translation rarely seen.This book is a compendium of living instructions, all of which apply equally to today's practitioner as it did in years gone by. Some of these instructions you will be familiar with and others you will no doubt wrestle with for some time, before you fully understand them. In addition it covers in detail aspects of Tai Chi not normally covered in other publications. To take just one example, there is a chapter on posture testing a subject in its own right. And If you can master the advice given in this one chapter alone, this in itself will justify the purchase price.
There are many books that provide translations of some of the classics, but this book goes further it provides a mixture of the classics together with Grand Master Ip's own journal which, adds life and meaning to what in other books are just esoteric translations. I can't pretend. No, did I expect to understand all of the teachings in this book in my first reading but it is one of those rare books that can be re -read time and time again, with each reading revealing new insights and understanding to the practitioner. It should also be kept at hand and used as a reference book as and when the need arises.
I can't summarise this book better than repeat the words used by Master Ding the Translator and first disciple of Grandmaster Ip Tai Tak: -
"The aim of this book is to empower the Tai chi Chuan practitioner with the opportunity to grow and mature at many levels.... And should be used as a tool to exercise the mind, as well as feed the spirit"
And this it does in Spades
This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it.
