I would not necessarily recommend this as your first qigong book ('The Way of Qigong' by Kenneth Cohen would be better for that), simply as it does not go into a great deal of depth. However, this makes a fantastic supplemental book. It provides a much greater range of qigong exercises than many other books, including some simpler stretching exercises, and it describes them very well.
