    A deeply insightful and easy to read book

    This guy just gets how to write and teach martial arts. The book navigates you through the art of kung fu in an easy, yet thorough and enjoyable read. The book is broken down into several chapters, each one discussing different aspects of kung fu. The author's use of "key boxes" in these chapters summarizes the essential mechanics of the art into simple, but still detailed layman's terms. These boxes are a great device to understanding the inner workings of the art and include more than just how to practice properly. Each of the subjects or movements are broken down, revealing kung fu training and application in an easy manner. The pictures in the book are very good; straightforward and not hard to follow like many other martial arts books are. I just got this book and I already believe this is one of the better books on my shelf and in the market. It is not only useful, but very interesting to anyone with even a slight interest of the art.
