I won't add much to the comments already posted, but do add my vote to warning you off this book. There are many unsubstantiated claims, dubious technical statements and over romantic descriptions designed to impress the writer's authority. My (least) favourite are the over use of the word "engulfing" and "golden" when describing breathing air (ki power!) and the description of ki-ai as a "martial arts yell" on several occassions. I cannot be more accurate as I skipped large sections of this book in disdain. I'd love the resell it to get my money back, but to spare any others I have deposited it in the grey rectangular filing cabinet in the corner of the kitchen aka the bin.
