If you are a Chinese martial arts enthusiast you will enjoy this book for the written sections on background, history, and practice of this old style.
The only problem lies in the line drawings. While they're generally pretty good, some of them do NOT make clear how the stance/strike is performed, which makes things confusing when you get to the photos. The balancing stance drawings, for example, don't show the hands exactly as they're supposed to be (refer to the first practical application in chapter five for the actual positions.) These are really rather minor, but if you're a rookie like me, it can trip you up.
This is a minor complaint, though, for a great book. If you're interested in this art, pick this book up post haste!
