5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and effective, 18 Dec. 2011
This review is from: The Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth (Hardcover)
I got this book after I purchased a similar book from another author and gave it to a friend who decided to keep it. I've read some of the reviews here and see that some people do not like the first exercise - the spinning. It is my favorite. While it does say in this one and other similar books that it is not recommended to go overboard with spinning - there I times I do spin about 99 times three times a day. It's a way of getting naturally high. (On a side not, spinning is my favorite part of salsa dancing).

I also know a woman who has transformed literally in a few months by doing these exercises - and she too, did mostly spinning. Not only did she look younger, but she become way slimmer.

Some reviewers say that this it not a book for beginners - but the exercises (essentially hatha yoga exercises) are very simple and you are meant to do them according to your comfort level, progressing at your own pace, so it doesn't matter how stiff or flexible you are - if you persist with the exercises you are bound to make progress. I'd even call this book "lazy man's book for flexiblity and awakening vital energy" because, after all, it only has five exercises.

There is a sixth "rite", but to the practice of that one, I believe that Taoist books related to the cultivation of sexual energy (e.g. Mantak Chia's) do it much greater justice.
