Whether you are a beginner just interested in the subject of Qi cultivation or an experienced participant in the arts this book will teach you a lot. I like books with simple language I can understand and lots of pictures to help the learning process along. This book has those qualities. The book covers Micro and Macro Cosmic Breathing, Five Element Qigong, Five Animal Qigong, Acupressure Techniques, the Eight Brocades Qigong and so much more. Probably 3 or 4 books in one, but it's not overwhelming in presentation. The author talks about his personal fight with cancer. These techniques are the ones he uses. I have also used these techniques myself and they do work. If you want a book by someone (Dr. Michael Steward, Sr.) who's walked the walk, then you should give serious consideration to this book.

I have highly recommended this fantastic book to all my friends.

I have read the book, Awaken The Dragon, I feel that the book is very well writen with excellent techniques and recipes, that people of all age groups can use, the book would make a great reference book for students to use in there studies in Qi Cultivation and use the recipes to help cure some problems that they might have. I have tried the recipe for headaches and it works. The author has done a wonderful job. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.

I highly recommend this book on Qi Gong. Dr. Michael Steward Sr. shares his extensive knowledge about Qi Gong to help everyone, from novices to more advanced learners to understand what Qi is, how it is acquired, what it feels like, how to cultivate it and use it to promote healing. In each section, he provides historical and practical details to enhance your understanding of the topic. The diagrams of the meridians are clear, and he provides extensive details about how these meridians function in traditional Chinese medicine. I found his section on the "Classical Order and Flow in the Meridians" very interesting - it details which meridians are active at specific times of the day and night cycle. He then explains how these meridians are used in Qi Gong. He explains how specific meridians are considered to be "gates" where large amounts of Qi energy flow into the body and how Qi Gong meditation helps open these gates.

This book also has clear guidelines for Qi Gong practice, beginning with warmups to get Qi flowing. Using photos (black and white and a bit grainy but ok) he shows step by step how to move through each exercise. There are exercises to enhance qi flow in different parts of the body. At the beginning of each exercise section, he provides historical details along with the original purposes of that particular exercise.

All in all, this is an excellent book on Qi Gong. I only wish Dr. Steward had a DVD showing each exercise in motion, but his pictures and descriptions are so clear that it is possible to follow his teaching from his book alone.
