The book is geared to the advanced practitioner of Tai Chi. It is not a "Tai Chi for Dummies" kind of book that will tell you how to do Tai Chi forms. It has a discussion of Tai Chi in China today, a brief history of Grandmaster Li's family involvement, a brief history, and advice for Tai Chi practitioners, including beginners. Step-by-step descriptions of a number of Tai Chi forms are included in the book, including: 81-step Yang-style Tai Chi form, 24-step Taijiquan, 42-step Taijiquan, 42-step Taiji [straight] sword; and 32-step Taiji [straight] sword.
The attached DVD has examples of the Tai Chi forms beautifully presented by champion Tai Chi athletes.
Recommended for serious Tai Chi students.
This book is interesting because it lays bare a number of forms that are commonly performed. For someone interested in what this art has become, the book is of value. But, for someone searching for the core values of Taiji, they would do better to look elsewhere.
