"Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming has given us a very lucid presentation of the ancient practices of Chinese Medicine. It is a most worthwhile contribution to the bridging of Eastern and Western medical traditions." (Herbert Benson, M.D. Harvard Medical School, author of The Relaxation Response and Your Maximum Mind)
"This profound book is definitely recommended reading for a multitude of reasons, including it's great contribution to the understanding and cultivation of Qi utilizing obscure and elusive techniques developed in antiquity through enlightenment." (Bill Clement, Feng Shui Information Resource Feng Shui Information Resources)

Most true Kung Fu manuals are not printed any longer.
Many Kung Fu manuals, Martial arts manuals, books today are garbage. There is an old saying in Chinese.
True Kung Fu technique is taught in a page. Fake is in volumes.
The old teachers do not like to talk a lot. They keep it brief.
There are many many information collected here. Many techniques.
The thickness of the book is justified.
My Chinese Kung Fu manuals are thin. As thin as a pen, or a post it note. Some are thicker.
The garbage is really thick. This book is NOT garbage.
I have not read the entire book.
I have not found the chinese writings either as mentioned by another review here.
If they are there, the Chinese writings were presented to prove the source of the translation, and for those, like me, who can read Chinese, can interpret the meanings ourselves. I have 4 of his other books, also have Chinese in the last few pages, but not seen it yet in this book.
The Shaolin exercises are real. I have the Chinese version from another author printed before 1930. I haven't dedicated my life to practicing them, due to distractions in life. No I don't have an ipod, a big distraction today. But there are other distractions. and 24 hours a day isn't enough for me to use.
The information presented here are gathered from many sources, I believe, and organized in a way Dr. Yang and his teachers would believe as appropriate.
The diagrams on the 4 seasons were very helpful for me to understand the source of some of the 6 healing sounds, and how some people remember them in the past. You didn't see them ? You didn't pay attention. And you cannot read Chinese.
The information teaches: Getting up before sunrise.
Never knew the reason until I read it here.
Lots of information. Too much. Depending on your age, you should only practice some of the information taught here.
You cannot have time to practice all unless you are still 22 or younger.
It takes 10 years to succeed in ONE practice/ skill routine.
You think it takes 2 days ? 2 months ?
2 years would built a foundation. And most "fakes" would take this opportunity to teach and make money.
The Shaolin exercises needs to be modified to be perfect. Take it easy.
Take it slow.
Or you will over exert and give up like I did at one time
The clue is about our heart, and American way of isolating the muscles
for strengthening works here.
A must read for anyone seeking to build and store Qi for self-cultivation.
Recommended reading several times while also writing notes.
Thank you so much Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming thank you!!!
