I found it to be the most rounded and concise guide to understanding Tai Chi that I've seen so far, and being focused on Chen, drawn directly and translated from some of the definitive masters, make it a perfect Chen-style reference book.
The explanations in all respects, particularly principles, are clearly written and easy to understand.
Of course you can't learn from a book alone, but it helps me to understand better some of the things I puzzle over from my learning experiences, builds a picture of the evolution of the styles, simplifies some of the more 'mystical' aspects and explains in simple terms some of the key points that aren't always obvious to the student.
Five years on and I continue to use this book as a teaching aid and loan it to new students for study. Most of them eventually buy their own copy.
Recommended for students of Tai Chi seeking a little more than a 'How To' book.
Instead, we have a book that is obviously well researched and cram packed full with useful information on the principles of Taiji practice - drawing from the Chen family writings and the Taiji classics.
The book concerns itself primarily with Chen Style Taiji, but the ideas and principles talked about will be relevant to exponents of all styles. Certainly all Chen Style practitioners will find this an invaluable resource and there is much in it that practitioners of other styles will find enlightens their understanding and appreciation of their art.
