I simply can't emphasize enough how valuable I consider this book. The translated Chinese texts and modern-day rewordings are an absolute treasure to any Baguazhang practitioner who wants to gain a deeper understanding of his or her art. I recommend this book wholeheartedly to everyone with even a passing interest in Baguazhang, and also to other internal stylists who would like access to some fascinating commentary on Bagua QiGong. You'd be hard-pressed to find a 500+ page work on ANY martial art that is as information-heavy as this one. Buy and enjoy.

The translations of classic Chinese texts are invaluable…
I have found this book to be the most comprehensive book on Baguazhang.
The theoretical aspects of the art as laid down by [the authors] in this book are absolutely essential...

Many books on [martial arts] leave me disappointed; this [book] on the other hand was a breath of fresh air. Simply Outstanding!!
