For a person with a Phd, I would expect him to at least have a clue what Tai Chi or Qigong is all about, but he clearly does not (see my review of Pain Free by Pete Egoscue). I know of many people who have practiced Tai Chi and Qigong and they all brag about how it has made them FEEL younger and FEEL more fit, but the real life 24-step Tai Chi method requires too much room for use in limited spaces (like for practicing at home), so I thought that standing meditation might be an alternative. I should have known from the title that this was New Age nonsense from the start and I recommend that no one waste their time to buy or read this book if they are serious about these kind of exercises.
