of Chang's teachings, his life journey, and the students who gravitated to him. Cheng was an exemplar in many areas of inquiry, a healer,
herbalist, martial artists, and one of Yang's best students. His Tai Chi form was changed along the way from what he learned from Yang,
but that does not take away his genius nor his Mastery.
What comes across in this book is Chang's humanity. For any serious student of Tai Chi, Chang was one of the great
exemplars of the movement. Smith's book is also worth reading too.
Great book for anyone interest in Tai Chi History.
