My only issue with the book is that, in my view, he confuses the distinction between relaxation, visualization, concentration, meditation and attention. Space does not allow me to explain in detail, but I feel that a distorted presentation is given and that a clear understanding of the distinction between these practices is not given. I don't think this does any damage, as such, but I was somewhat disappointed that an opportunity has been lost to provide a profound supporting dimension to the practice of Tai Chi.
I first came across the book in my local lending library and decided it was well worth having my own copy. I think the book is now out of print as there are some quite staggering prices quoted on Amazon. I was able, through Amazon, to obtain a second-hand copy in good condition at a price of one penny, plus £2.81 P&p.
