While to an average reader this material will not seem like much, to Cheng M'an Ching style practitioners this is an affirmation of the Professor's skills, knowlege, and personality. Parts of the book contain anecdotes about the Professor's life, while others offer his advice for daily practice, with bits of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine,) Confucianism, and Taoist thought thrown in.
If you are looking for stories about Professor Cheng and some of his advice to his students, this book is for you. If, however, you are not a CMC stylist, or are looking for a Taiji how-to book, you might need to look elsewhere. Otherwise, a welcome addition to any Cheng M'an Ching stylist's library.
