Tai Chi, a seemingly gentle exercise can keep your body balanced, bones strong, muscles flexible and your mind calm, relaxed and alert. Performed at a slow, deliberated pace, Tai Chi improves your stamina, balance, and concentration, whether you are 18 or 80. This basic course starts from first principles and takes the reader step by step through a series of movements. Short exercises, which improve posture and link the body and mind, are later combined into one continuous, flowing movement called a form. Many Tai Chi movements are subtle and discreet and all are performed while standing, they can even be practised while waiting for a bus, standing in line or out shopping without drawing attention. Over 500 step-by-step photographs, all specially taken for this book, show you how to learn and progress through each movement. Special continuous-motion photography is used to show the flow of movement. Tai Chi is relatively easy to master, thoroughly enjoyable, and has amazing benefits regardless of your age or existing level of fitness.

Books can never replace lessons but a lot can be learned from them. This is not floaty fluffy stuff but the real deal. If that's what you want, then I cannot recommend this book more highly.
In my view this book succeeds in my view where most others fail. It includes sound tai chi principles. Excellent for starting to learn the Chen form.
