. . . if you are interested in T'ai Chi Ch'uan and want to become informed, you should stop reading this review and run, don't walk, to the book store and purchase Dr. Chuckrow's book . . .

Mary Lucas, Taijiquan Journal. Summer 2000

. . . The Tai Chi Book is one of, if not the best, T'ai Chi Ch'uan reference book this reviewer has read (this remark is qualified by several large shelves of books ranging in quality from "pretty good to "absolute waste of paper"). The only way this book could be improved upon is that it be printed on acid free paper in hardbound format. The Tai Chi Book is a highly recommended buy for all students of T'ai Chi Chuan."
