An informative and fascinating book written by a an author recognised in the East and West as an authority in both a practical and scholarly sense. This volume can be read in sequence from cover to cover, by individual topic, or be dipped into at random - all to the reader's satisfaction. It's definitely not a 'how to' or 'coffee table' book, rather it's a comparative compendium of well written information about the history, concepts, principles and theories of the three main Chinese 'internal' martial arts: pleasingly punctuated by stories about great masters and the author's own experiences and anecdotes (includes accounts of his martial arts training and experiences in Japan as well as China).

Excellent reading for anyone practicing internal or external martial arts. A great aid to understanding the history and relationship between the internal and external martial arts. A must even even for those studying oriental arts only for health.

A truly fantastic book gives lots of detailed explinations, not a book to be worked through quickly but well worth the effort especial if you are interested in any form of martial art chi gung or tia che highly recommended.

Lots of reference to his personel acievements, which seem to repeat themselves. Some how it did nothing to inspire me. I lost my way after the first chapter and ended up flicking through for something to follow and then try myself.
Maybe I was after an idiots guide, step by step instruction.
