    very highly recommended!

    This is beautiful and comprehensive book. I haevw many books on this subject, but return ton this one - and the DVD by the same author and title - over and over again. The instructions are very clear and there are lots of helpful illustrations. Every aspect of this beautiful art is broken down so intelligently, and the author seems to have a knack for conveying subtle concepts clearly.

    I have learned a lot from the chapters on breathing, stances, etc. The four gates breathing technique, regularly pracaticed, has heed me get to sleep on many restless nights. This is a great book all around.
