About the Author
Wang Mu (1908-92) received the Longmen ordination in his youth. He taught Internal Alchemy (Neidan) and, in his own country, was held in high regard by both practitioners and Taoist scholars. He served as a board member of the China Taoist Association and was for some time in charge of its research activities. He is known outside China mainly for his annotated edition of the "Wuzhen pian" (Awakening to Reality), the text at the basis of the outline of Internal Alchemy that he provides in the present book.

One thing to note however is that this is not a book for beginners. This would be appropriate for advanced meditation and qigong practitioners who have had direct transmission of these methods from a teacher. It would also be useful to professional doctors of Chinese medicine like myself to give them an appreciation for the differences in medical theory and Daoist practice. However, even for them it will be a difficult read without some direct transmission of the knowledge. For the right people though, this book is like a precious piece of gold. A must have.
