The Way of Walking: Eastern Strategies for Vitality, etc.,
This review is from: Way of Walking: Eastern Strategies for Vitality, Longevity, and Peace of Mind (Paperback)
Dr. Moramarco's book covers a wide range of topics related to wellness, and explains them in a way that laymen can understand.
I have studied martial arts and Tai Chi Chuan for the better part of a decade, often following my teachers through strange exercises and not knowing why. The Way of Walking explains why certain breathing exercises are vital to performance, and greatly aid in improving health. I learned more from this book than from many of my instructors.
While I took a lot of usefull information from this book, what really surprised me was my mother's reaction to it. Before I had finished reading it, my mother started flipping through it. After a few minutes she commandeered my copy and took it home. Now my mother couldn't care less about martial arts or Eastern philosophy. But she does care about her health. She read the entire book and high-lighted the sections having to do with nutrition and breathing exercises. She is already starting to implement some of the healthy sugestions in the book, and is even talking about starting Tai Chi.
I really can't express how good this book is, both for martial artist and couch potato looking to turn over a new (healthy) leaf. I can only recomend that you read it for yourself.
