Douglas Wile's T'ai Chi's Ancestors and Lost T'ai-ch'i Classics from the Late Ch'in Dynasty deserve to be treated as a pair and included in every serious student's library. They are unique in that they not only present previously secret, advanced concepts to Western readers; they introduce a much needed, well balanced, Western perspective to T'ai Ch'i martial arts literature. Readers, East and West, should be cautioned however. These are advanced texts that require a great deal of thought and careful analysis to be appreciated.
