The Tao of What?????, April 28, 2003
If you are new to the world of taoism then this book is NOT for you. It provides a fasinating insight into the Western and Eastern paradigms. Very revealing and exhausable; nearly every aspect is covered in comendable detail. But, and this is a big but, it is very complex and leaves you on more than one occassion feeling a little out of your depth. There are no exercises detailed to practise (that is not the point of the book) but lots of interesting parallels are drawn between the two schools of thought. If you are interested in the science of chi gong and/or what to write a paper for your University/college that will quite literally blow your teacher's mind then this is the book for you. I personally loved it, but I am not sure if it is to the general public's taste. However as you are reading this, then 'The Tao of bioenergetics' IS probarly for you - just don't be surprised if you end up reading each page at least twice! A brillant investment for the future!!
