13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Melinda Artz on August 22, 2001
Format: Paperback
Eager Westerners scoop up videos and books on t'ai chi hoping to learn this powerful movement form without a real, live teacher. "Ride the Tiger" is one of the few that can help you do just that! Simple, step-by-step, behaviorally specific instructions with photos and drawings are balanced with equally simple questions to self-check one's progress. The story of how the author, a nuclear physicist, was drawn to learn and then teach t'ai chi provides a unique slant on East meets West. His explanations of how it works based on his scientific understandings are especially intriguing. Qualified teachers are becoming more widely available, but in the meantime, this book is a useful tool.

Our group started using the later book: The Healing Art of Tai Chi, when I found this one as well. Both are excellent references, whether you are doing a class or working on your own. Added bonus: the author is both a scientist and a tai chi master, so you get the traditional and scientific views.
