What makes this book so great is that the exercises are extremely effective and quite simple to practice, and what is more, you don't have to practice them for years to get results. In fact I tried a few myself and noticed a considerable difference in only a few days. Some might find these exercises TOO simple and believe that they just CAN'T be that effective. This is a grave error that illustrates how people often assume that unless something is complicated it isn't worth practicing. Believe me, sometimes the most effective things are the most simple, and once you've practiced some of the exercises in this book you'll understand why.
Wong Kiew Kit presents a reader friendly workbook on the complex art of Chi Kung. He presents to the reader the philosophy behind the art, the explanation of the art's various terms and introduces the various exercises to help you raise your energy level.
I was very impressed by the simplicity of the book, the clarity of the exercise diagrams and the dynamics of Chi Kung. I began to practice just a few of the exercises and immediately felt the results. Since then this book has never been out of my reach. I had not been acquainted with the art and on a whim purchased this book to satisfy my curiousity. I highly recommend the book and its exercises for those who are beginning to explore Chi Kung. It is a good introductory volume that will give you invaluable lessons on harnessing your vital energy.
Where the book fails to me is that it does not show you the cycle of chi gung exercises to develop the internal strength it highly praises. There are a few specific movements that are "prescribed" for certain maladies or goals but these are not going to be very useful without having taken the time to develop the basis for such use. I've been involved with the martial arts, aikido and jujitsu, for over 20 years and I've been doing chi kung for about half that time. To get anywhere near the type of results this book mentions you have to develop the full cycle of chi kung exercises through a regimen of daily practice. "Spot" applications of particular exercises will lack the chi development that comes from daily practice...it would be like going in to a gym and expecting to come out looking like Atlas after one visit. Following the advise in this book by itself, based on my experience, would be very frustrating to people.
A better "how to" book for chi kung is "The Way of Energy" by Master Lam Kam Chuen. Master Chuen offers a very specific and practical development of the chi kung exercises from beginner to advanced. Drawings and explanations are easy to understand and not poorly translated from Chinese. There are also adequate healthcare warnings as several of the moves can be quite a strain on the circulatory system.
