I cannot say enough about chi gong, it's the only reason I'm still walking on the planet. I'm trying to learn as much as I can about it; and this particular book explains, as well as offers invaluable exercises!! I highly recommend it!

less about chi gong & more about history & political attitudes toward the practice.

I see where Mr. Dong has written about the "spontaneous moves" as he calls them. I taught this art to Paul Dong several years ago. It is a true art that he describes. I was teaching empty force in my Tai Chi school in the mid 60's. I had never heard of anyone that knew of this or what it was called until I saw Paul's book on Empty Force. I see the usual doubters saying it is false, not a true art etc. They don't know what they are talking about. They claim students are "going along" with the moves etc. In some cases this may be true, but in the early 60's I had a friend stand several feet away and while watching TV, and talking to two girls I rendered him unconscious at a distance of 15 feet. He was out cold for about an hour. So if I were you, one of these "doubters" I'd apologize for your obnoxious comments and ignorance . If you can locate Mr. Dong ask him about spontaneous moves and see if you can learn from him.

"Chi Gong" is a historical study of the ancient art of chi gong along with other disciplines of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The author very aptly explains the differences between Eastern and Western Medicine, the strengths and weaknesses of both, and how the practice and mastery of Chi Gong can be used to improve one's health, treat illnesses in others and can be a valuable spiritual practice. Perhaps a weakness in the book is the author's discussion of the practice of Chi Gong in that the material and the illustrations are not detailed and simplified enough as an easy learning method.

I really learned alot about chi gong from this book. I have read many books about qi gong or chi gong and this one is well written and very inspiring. He explains alot of the history behind this healing art and alot of is about his trip to China in the 1980's to study and learn. As far as being an instruction manual it is pretty brief. their are other books that go more into detail like "The Way of Energy" by Master Lam Kam Chuen and "Qi Gong for beginners" by Dr. Stanley Wilson. However it is really about finding a good fit for you as a person and this is certainly a classic in my mind. Thank you so much Paul Dong for sharing Your knowledge. I too have improved my health through regular qi gong practice over the last six years and have seen many miracles take place with my own health and that of others.

I looked into this book after the reviews I saw here and would like to comment on it.

I think this book is great if you ONLY want to read about chi gong (qigong). Yes it is full of details, over 100 pages, but actually missing the most important part in my opinion: teaching a working and easy to learn method. The value of a book doesn't depend on its lenght but on how much it can add to people's lives.

So if you want to read only about chi gong to get to know it by all means buy it. Yet, if you want to learn chi gong and experience its benefits in your life I suggest picking another one.
There is little to recommend this book now that there are more English language books available on chi gong.
The author's discussion on the conceptual aspects of chi gung are particularly confusing, meandering and poorly reasoned.
There is some limited discussion of different types of chi gung and some limited discussion of how to practice chi gung. The practice material is insufficiently detailed or clear to be of much use. There are far more useful books available today about learning chi gung.
Apart from a few interesting stories about specific chi gung masters there is very little value to be found in this book.
