6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Prokopton on January 22, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I don't know of any equivalent for these books, two volumes filled with Tao Cannon breathwork treatises. The 1st volume carries the distinction of being the only book to appear twice in the same Glenn Morris bibliography (see Martial Arts Madness: A User's Guide to the Esoteric Martial Arts), and having recommended it he adds: "A literalist could easily be led astray by these wily words." So it proves, and if you have no experience with Taoist-style energy work you will only be bamboozled into misinterpretation.

But if you can decode what's being said, this is a real gem of useful stuff to try out (always supposing you're doing so off the back of a steady and stable prior practice.) I won't pretend I've got out of it anything like what's possible, but every time I open it, which is not infrequently, I do learn something new and valuable.

I really have to praise the translator and publisher for putting these volumes together. They are a real resource, and the fact that they are so easily and simply available to us Westerners does represent a real opportunity. It feels a little odd to be the only person reviewing here! If you know what you are buying, you will get endless use out of these. Steep yourself.
