As a wheelchair user and T'ai Chi novice I found this book of excellent use. The 15-minute routines are a nice length to begin with but can be added together to make a longer session if desired.
A wide range of acupressure healing points is included with clearly written instructions and diagrams, making this both an informative and beneficial fitness guide.

Found by an elderly TaiChi group to be very good to maintain mobility. Recommended for excercise when not very mobile.

This is perfect for folks who are elderly, infirm or disabled. The ethos of tai chi is that it should be accessible to everyone - rather like yoga - and this book demonstrates how that can be so. This book has written for people who are differently abled and not lazy - the kinds of folks I teach actually. Previous reviewers, please take note!

If you can sit on a chair you can do these exercises, and they deliver immediately. The section on breathing exercises is excellent, worth buying the book for on their own. Highly recommended

it gives you a very brief insight into the benefits of Tai Chi, even when done in the chair. Thanks

There is much of value in this book but it is let down by poor execution and editing which is a great shame because I want this book to succeed.
There is a need for a book on T’ai Chi for those of us less mobile than we would wish and this book could be it. However, it is marred by typos and the explanation of the moves is not greatly aided by the accompanying photographs.
I would urge the author to withdraw the book for a complete overhaul and to employ a decent editor and a good illustrator to produce line drawings of the moves with accompanying arrows to indicate the correct movements. Alternatively, just film someone going through the routine and post it to Youtube.
I will persist with this book because it does have worth. I just wish the knowledge were a little easier to get at!

Not a patch on the Sifu William Lee series. Also the illustrations are not very clear.
