I have purchased this book 3 weeks ago. This book is a practice manual.
Most of the practices I've learnt in seminars, directly from Master, can be found in the book (and there are more).
I must say that the techniques are written with much detail ( as I expected from Master Wang which takes teaching very seriously ) .
Truly a must buy !
First, a little about me so you know where this review is coming from. I've studied martial arts since I was a kid, giving me more years of experience than I'd care to document here thank you. I've studied energy work for almost as long and had a regular daily practice of varying kinds and quality for most of my life. I have an extensive collection of these kinds of books/videos, studied with several qualified instructors (and some not so qualified) and have thus accumulated fair amount of knowledge (preconceived ideas) about the field.
I don't normally review these kind of books as I feel that 1) you can learn something from everybody (even if it's to avoid their stuff like the plague). 2) sturgeon's law says that 90% of everything is crap and in my experience that is generous in regards to most reviews (sorry folks, not all of the thoughts that drip out of your head are gems). Thus I am extremely hesitant to contribute to internet fertilization. 3) I also just don't have the energy to beat up an author that put out a book that I don't care for, especially since I haven't gotten around to writing/publishing something worthy of review.
That being said I believe this to be the best of the bunch currently out there. I'd put this on par/above Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming, this is less scholarly and just as clear and practical. Unlike Dr Yang's stuff he doesn't include a lot of the original Chinese text, which I don't think detracts from the 'authenticity' at all. (seriously, how may people actually read those parts anyway? I'm just waiting for the day when a reviewer points out how he pull one over on all of the silly white people and those blocks of text are actually a recipe for turtle soup. But I digress.) I still feel that it's the traditional stuff and authentic but that's more based on my personal experience then some kind of objective standard. For example this lacks the handful of ancient drawing that say Eva Wong's stuff has, and instead uses simple computer drawn diagrams that in my opinion are just as effective and in some cases more clear. And since her name has come come up this ranks well above Eva Wong's stuff for clarity. Which isn't a dig against her. Her stuff is meant to present the ancient documents and let you decide for yourself. It's just that this book is clearly designed to make the procedures crystal clear to modern readers.
There also isn't any sales pitch of say Mantak Chia's or Bruce Franz's stuff. Hey, I'm not judging, both of these authors have a solid library of useful materials. It's just that their entire libraries are not as simple, clear or advanced as this single volume. While for the most part he only outlines the advanced levels, he does offer some. In fact the steps for the few advanced stages of development are clearly several levels beyond anything either of those authors even elude to. Not having achieved those levels I'm not can't attest to their authenticity. But it sure looks to be an interesting journey! And just in the interest of full disclosure I've used some of Mantak Chia's stuff for several decades without losing my mind. (uh, at least that's what the voices tell me.....)
The use of jargon is minimal. I know some reviewers feel that too many Chinese terms can lose a reader such as in the case of Charles Luk's Taoist Yoga. And in defense of Chuck, I personally found that after I muscled my way past the gag reflex of the shear density of the material it wasn't all that new or ground breaking. (this is from a guy with a PhD in molecular biology telling you Charles' stuff is dense. So, you know....).
This also lacks the holding-your-hand introductory material of say Jou, Tsung Hwa's stuff. Thus if you don't have the slightest inkling as to what Taoism, internal alchemy or nei gong is, going into this book cold may not be the best first step for you. However if you want, a simple, concise, crystal clear how to, step by step. Then this is it.
I've had several discussions with friends about this stuff and they think that I'm crazy, (or just stupid) so you shouldn't let my take on this book disturb you much. If you are a fellow serious practitioner you are probably reading this review out of curiosity not any kind of need for validation of your choice. As for the rest of you who have managed to wade through this stream of conciseness I'd like to offer this disclaimer: as with most of the books of this field of study. The best way to explore this kind of path is with the guidance of a qualified teacher, and as always your mileage may vary!
This book by Damo Mitchell is also excellent, and my primary go to book. It takes you from the very basics up through enough advanced stuff to keep you busy for years. If you can only afford one book on Nei Kung, his is the one. No doubt. What is nice is he's a westerner and writes clearly and concisely, in a language that is understandable for a western audience.
This book is also good, Stuart Alve Olson gives you a nice solid start in terms of an introduction to the more intelectual side of Taoism. This is the first book I ever read, and it really did give me a very nice understanding of basic terminology and what all the strange words like Qi, Jing, and Shen really meant.
Without going through those, I would not have understood this one at all, purely speaking from and intelectual standpoint. You have to have that understanding before even hoping to apply any of this in a practical manner. Wang Li Ping is way way more advanced than any other modern practitioner I have ever come across. If you have not read "Opening the Dragon Gate, Making of a Modern Taoist Wizard" which is the story of his training, I highly recommend it. The stuff in it might read like a wu xia novel, but believe me I know that once you get far and high enough in training, this stuff IS possible. I firmly believe this, I've seen and experience some really strange things over time and can attest to the truth of what this stuff. Well worth the time to read and try out.
It is essentially a practical guide to the practice, with some important classics included.
