Qigong for Health and Martial Arts, Jonin (Barnes and Noble reviewer) November, 2009
This book is for all level of practitioners, for every age. It does not only give valuable advise to a martial arts practitioner but also serves as an exercise book for those who want to maintain wellness when aging. Several topics in this book were known to me before reading it. But the simple and well done explanations on selected topics opened me new horizons and new insights and created a deeper understanding of this ancient science.Excellent Overview, R. Lorenz(Amazon reviewer) February, 2010
I have quite a few books about qigong, and I find this one to be the clearest explanation from a practical standpoint of how qigong works. There is a nice division of external and internal practices, and the diagrams and photographs are easy to follow.Qigong Student, L. Einbinder "dutchman59" (Amazon reviewer) February, 2010
As usual, Dr. Yang has written an interesting and informative book regarding Qigong. This book is comprehensive, easy to read and contains excellent photos and diagrams. There is a great deal of information packed in a concise manner and the book adds to the reader's knowledge of this martial art form.
I especially enjoyed and valued Dr. Yang's explanation of how Qigong is related to physical and mental healing by utilizing physical exercise along with meditation. This book is an excellent resource to learn the basics and principles of Qigong. The author creates a good marriage of theory and practice through photos and diagrams which show body pressure points and cavities used in acupuncture.
The entire book is a valuable wealth of information and is a great companion piece to Dr. Yang's Qigong DVDs. Taken together, the student can learn a great deal about Qigong both in theory and practice. This book will be re-read by me many times over
