The book is perhaps the only Chinese-English translation of the advises and poems from the masters. It's the only one I am aware of. He not only translates it literally but figuratively as well.
I don't recommend this for a beginner.
For an intermediate student, this little book will become a valuable sources of reference. Contained here, are translations of the Taiji Classics. Mainly:
-The Tai Chi Chuan Classic,
-Wang Chun Yueh's Mental Elucidation of Thirteen Postures,
-Wang Chun Yueh's Tai Chi Chuan Treatise,
-Song of Substance and Function of the Thirteen Postures,
Each passage contains comments seasoned by T.T. Liang's many years of experience. The writings describe the appropriate weight distribution, posture, breathing, and sensations which a practitioner should feel if doing the form properly.
Definitely an eye opener for anyone who is serious about their study of Tai Chi Quan, and wants a deeper understanding of the forms and their applications.
