    its really special to have a translation of these short texts the translation is good the introductory chapters and the commentary are useful and interesting, but need to be filtered for irrelevant information and personal biases of the author while accurate, the commentary is only a single interpretation the content of the original text is very powerful and multi dimensional.

    The principals of tai chi.This book does an excellent job of explaining the principles of tai chi, and what makes them work I think that a beginner or an advanced practitioner could get something valuable from reading this excellent book.

    This is a very good book I have been practicing Tai Chi for about a year and a half and this really helped me to understand the breathing better and the philosophy of Tai Chi itself.

    This book conveys the teachings of three tai chi masters of old Chang San feng, Wong Chung yua, and Wu Yu hsiang However, those masters treatises take up only a small portion of the book That s not a criticism No doubt the treatises were cryptic and sparse, and so they are presented with commentary embedded rather than as literal translations The treatises discuss the concepts that each of the masters thought was essential to the art, and the author conveys these complex and ethereal ideas This book conveys the teachings of three tai chi masters of old Chang San feng, Wong Chung yua, and Wu Yu hsiang However, those masters treatises take up only a small portion of the book That s not a criticism No doubt the treatises were cryptic and sparse, and so they are presented with commentary embedded rather than as literal translations The treatises discuss the concepts that each of the masters thought was essential to the art, and the author conveys these complex and ethereal ideas in a way that is as understandable as possible Before presenting the three treatises in chapters four through six, the author offers a three chapter background on essential concepts for the tai chi student to understand Chapter 1 presents historical background on tai chi and differentiates temple style from the family styles of tai chi, as well as giving insight into the philosophical underpinnings of the art The second chapter offers a primer on chi, the life force energy that is at the conceptual heart of tai chi Chapter 3 describes jing and the means by which chi is expanded and transferred After the three treatise chapters, there is a final chapter that is intended to take the book from theory to practice Most of the final chapter is a step by step description of a tai chi form, and consists of line drawings of the positions with bullet point descriptions of the movements However, the chapter begins with some lists of key philosophical concepts as well as clarifying ideas about movement fundamentals There are line drawings throughout the book, not only to show physical positions in the practice but also diagrams to help convey the difficult concepts discussed throughout the book as well as Chinese calligraphy characters Besides the calligraphy, these graphics are crude, looking as one might expect in a notebook I don t think the crude form of the graphics is a problem, and the notebook effect it creates may be an intentional aesthetic As I don t believe one can learn a martial art or other system of movement from a book, the fact that the graphics don t offer much detail isn t a problem I found the book to be thought provoking and would recommend it for students of tai chi and qi gong

    It s not really possible to teach yourself Tai Chi without a teacher So everyone says, and such has been my experience Even videos haven t been that helpful But this book is as good as it gets it has both theory and detailed diagrams and instructions on the form I would highly recommend it as a supplement to actually finding a teacher.

    An introduction to the principles and forms of t ai chi The experience of the author gives this text credibility I would have a harder time understanding the book without also practicing t ai chi as limited as my practice is.

    This book goes indepth into the martial art of Tai Chi and suggests that the modern aspect of what we know of the ancient art is not really the complete story or the true art form for that matter Much was either hidden or lost according to the author Waysun Liao, and he brings a whole new level of understanding, history and serious practice in what Tai Chi is supposed to be and how it effects the mind, body and spirit But let the reader decide for himself.
