There is much more of "the author" in this one, and he shares his opinions and insights throughout, while illustrating his ideas with excerpts from his blog posts, as well as from martial arts literature. His emphasis is on the aspects of practice and performance of the various disciplines that provide the "environment" in which it all exists, which is to say the Yin that is often unnoticed rather than the Yang, which is obvious, exciting, and beckons all the attention. Of course, the one without the other is . . . incomplete -- and the author helps us to see the whole picture. Skillful means!
Anyone who enjoyed Cook Ding's Kitchen - A Kung-fu Carry-out, will enjoy this second course. A lot of nutrition in just 64 pages, and "a good price for you," as my Chinese vendors used to say. Highly commended, and then re-commended.
It opens with a story about a "fighting cock" which is very appropriate for the theme of the rest of the book. It's about the internal benefits of conscientious training without anything involving fighting.
