"Get the most from a Tai Chi practice with a book for students who have learned a Tai Chi form and who want to know more. Beginners receive a strong and simple introduction to the basics behind Tai Chi practices, from choosing a teacher to understanding the instructions. An excellent choice for newcomers." (The Bookwatch)
". . . if you are interested in T'ai Chi Ch'uan and want to become informed, you should stop reading this review and run, don't walk, to the book store and purchase Dr. Chuckrow's book . . ." (Dewey Monroe Qi: The Journal of Traditional Eastern Health & Fitness)
". . . The Tai Chi Book is one of, if not the best, T'ai Chi Ch'uan reference book this reviewer has read (this remark is qualified by several large shelves of books ranging in quality from "pretty good to "absolute waste of paper"). The only way this book could be improved upon is that it be printed on acid free paper in hardbound format. The Tai Chi Book is a highly recommended buy for all students of T'ai Chi Chuan."

This is a general overview of T'ai Chi. Some of it is a bit idiosyncratic, like the parts about shoes, but I found some good info in it.
It also intelligently discusses the various styles and forms of tai chi.
The description of chi and it's uses was interesting, but I'm not really sure I buy into the author's philosophy, but this is just a small part of a very comprehensive book.
The book is intended for people who are studying the art of tai chi, and should not be purchased as a "how to" book. It does discuss various postures and their effect on joints and energy movement, but it does not attempt to actually teach the forms. In my opinion, this is it's greatest strength.
