The Four Dragons completes a trilogy of plain English Daoist Nei Gong titles setting out a methodology which has proven so successful at Damo Mitchell's courses in Europe, the USA, and Asia. Damo's structured approach to physical health and energetic purging has connected a current generation of students to the energetic realm and prepared them for the next proposition in the Daoist Arts - nei dan. --Steve Galloway, practising Nei Gong teacher and owner of www.taiji-online.co.uk
The Four Dragons brilliantly conveys, with ease, clarity, and a refreshing sense of humor, ancient Daoist principles and teachings of Qi Gong, Dao Yin and Nei Dan. Until now this information has been shrouded in mystery and secrecy, behind monastery walls, for millennia. With practice, both the beginner and the advanced student will benefit greatly by the reading of this book, experiencing rapid improvements in health and wellbeing. One who cultivates further will be guided to the deepest levels of inner consciousness. --Barbara Abrams, L.Ac., Acupuncturist, and Faculty, Maryland University of Integrative Health

The Dao Yin exercises consist of 4 different walking methods. Each is explained with the help of nicely done line drawings and is reasonably easy to follow. The fundamentals and concepts are all well covered and the book builds on itself from start to finish. The exercises are given in 3 stages, from beginner up to advanced level practice, making them easier to learn and build upon.
I was massively impressed by the last chapter in particular as much of the information is often kept as a closely guarded secret. I read a lot of books, and this is the best I have read on internal work. I would highly recommend this to any student of the internal arts.
UPDATE: I've skim read three of his books so far, a further update will follow, initial impressions, his books are astounding, I'm not kidding, if you were a Tibetan Buddhist you'd have to study for 10 years, receive an empowerment (initiation) costing hundreds of pounds to be allowed to practice what is contained in these books !!! I know this from experience.
