5 starsLike Having Your Tai Chi Teacher in your Back Pocket, Gregory T. Candy (Amazon reviewer) July, 2000

This book is great supplement for someone who is currently studying tai chi, and for the accomplished tai chi player as a both a review and an aid if they in-turn teach. For me, it is like having my teacher in my back pocket. The book collects all the kinds of observations my teacher makes in class about form, performance, or chi while we're doing it. Gillman takes these little gems of advice and compiles them into wonderful and articulate collection. The subtitle A string of pearls is in that spirit and an appropriate subtitle.
