Format: Paperback
This was/is my 4th book on the subject. The others were rated highly, but this is the first one that truly teaches the essence/spirit of the style rather than simple mechanics. The mechanics are there too, but issues pertaining to compostiton, energy and spirit are covered, and taught in a way that allows you to creatively produce your own paintings instead of merely replicating someone else's. If you want to make this style creatively your own, this book is the best!!! But if you're more interested in being told step by step directions, without explanation, (like a Microsoft manual) there are others that do that.

Format: Paperback
This book is so-so when it comes to teaching brush painting.
The author is good with flowers and leaves. However, she's not very strong when it comes to any other subjects. This book will not work as your only book on the subject. Animals and humans especially are not the author's forte and end up looking off somehow.
As an introduction, however, it isn't too bad. I would recommend any book by Lucy Wang and The Simple Art of Chinese Painting by Qu Lei Lei in addition and over this book.

It might be that this is just a tough topic for a book I'm not sure but this book definitely doesn't have enough detail in terms of clear steps/pictures for a beginner.

does anyone else have trouble receiving orders? Is 3 weeks too long to wait when they say it will be mailed within 4 days, and it is usually 1 to 2. I can't find out per computer if is has even been mailed!
