    Questionable, and high priced.

    it is more of a 'how to wing chun knowing 20 easy facts' sort of book. it is just a little to vauge, spending too much time on factual things instead of drills.

    Outstandingly thorough, yet still accessible

    I don't have enough time in the day to say all the great things about this book. What I can say is that this is by far the most comprehensive book on wing chun (ving tsun) forms, techniques, and principles that I have ever encountered (and, for the record, I spend way too much time in the martial arts section of my local B & N). I already own three or four good wing chun books, but this book is better than all the others combined. Moreover, it presents the material in a logical, easy-to-follow fashion. It will be equally useful for someone reading it start to finish as it will be for someone looking to cherry-pick specific information. Personally, it has already aided me in fine-tuning my techniques. I have no doubt it will continue to offer such benefits for years to come. Outstanding effort and accomplishment. It is virtually assured to be the preeminent wing chun bible for decades to come.
