"Livia Kohn is absolutely the source on the origins and great luminaries of Qigong, Tai Chi, and Chinese Healing Exercises, or Chinese Yoga. As the world's appetite for stress mastery, wellness, and complementary medicine grows and the fields of health promotion and personal empowerment explode, there is a need for accurate reflection on the origins of China's ancient power tools for well-being, healing, and longevity. Based on sound scholarship and accessible to a wide audience, this book fulfills that need." -- Roger Jahnke, OMD
