The only thing I didn't like was the large section in the middle devoted to what looked like basic Chin Na. It would have been better without that section, but the descriptions of the Kungs made up for it. I still think though that this book is a must for every martial art library.
VERY GOOD BOOK - 4 1/2 STARS.

The section on Daoism is very good. The rest of the chapters are more overview-ish, but still contain good material. The dynamics chapter has a bunch of chi kung training drills which are illustrated and will evoke interest, if not hilarity. Chow's work on the television show "Kung Fu" shows in places, and even though the show was campy, Chow seems to be in tune with Shaolin philosophy - especially given his comments about training in the chin na chapter.
I highly recommend this book to those who don't know anything about Chinese martial arts, and wish to increase their exposure.
