Geoff's detailed personal description of the decline of his health - the acceptance into a special and profound school where he learned and practised the exercises in this book- is one of the most inspiring stories. That he later got cancer and then, after the expected side effects of his treatment - hardly suffered at all - is testimony of the value of what he and his wife have shared here.
The sincerity and compassion of a deeply moved and articulate couple comes through in these pages, especially their sound advice on other health related subjects. Thanks to both of them...I've been using their guidance and exercises, and right from the start, felt both better and more fully in control of my health and future.
The book is very interesting and makes for engaging reading. Geoff Pike is also very understanding and through stories and common sense, he raises the enthusiasm.
His background story may be useful in suggesting a primary audience. Geoff Pike relates briefly how he came to change his lifestyle at middle age due to the onset of physical exhaustion and uneasiness at his condition. The exercises are primary used to regain energy and vitality through the middle age lull and maintain liveliness into old age.
At first, I thought I had bought the wrong book, but anyone feeling older than they are could benefit (I am 21 but occasionally feel like a mummified carcass).
In summary; I know I probably should have waited another month before writing a review but I enjoyed the book so much that I wanted to share my thoughts. I am also interested in getting other variations on the pa tuan tsin sets which I now try to use daily. Good luck then.
