Usedskillfully, it can have a remarkable effect on health and vitality—to thedegree that you’d be tempted to call it magical, if it weren’t so completelynatural.

It providesan easy-to-understand explanation of chi, and then helps readers recognize,develop, and strengthen their own chi through specific breathing techniques andbasic exercises, all demonstrated by the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book October 13, 2011
By mwm9r
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of those books that you will want to read again, or just open up and start reading from any point. It is a very relaxing book to read and teaches you how to understand your life energy and how day to day life can drain it into non-existence. Then Waysun Liao teaches ways to feel and preserve your chi in a very simplistic way. It is a great book for setting the basics. It made me want to search out other books to further explore life energy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit extreme but ok. July 6, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's very detailed about the existence of Chi, ways to feel it and restore it. But it's also a bit religious fanatic on some points if you notice it.
Obviously it's the reader's choice to consider or not, those parts of the book. But I had to report. In general it's a must have book, very helpful and if you're
up to the challenge make sure to read the next 2 books. T'ai Chi Classiscs, and The Essence of T'ai Chi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chi September 12, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It truly gives you the essence of Chi in the manner of the older Masters. I find it very helpful as I practice Tai Chi Qui Gong and Martial Arts. There is a wonderful gentleness about it, with a respect for tradition. It is hard to find a copy.
