The deepest benefits of Tai Chi cannot be realized without an understanding of its underlying principles. This book presents these principles through translations of three core classics of Tai Chi that are often considered the "Tai Chi Bible", accompanied by the author's insightful commentary. Master Liao demonstrates how to increase the body's inner energy (chi) and transform it into power, health, and well-being. "Presents the basic principles of the complicated, sophisticated, and sometimes mysterious philosophy of Tai Chi...made easy to understand by the author's insightful commentary ...A worthy contribution to keeping the spirit of Tai Chi alive."--East and West Series
