The Tai Chi Book: Refining and Enjoying a Lifetime of Practice (Ymaa Book Series, 32.) - by Robert Chuckrow and James C. O'Leary (Editor) - Perceptive insight to wide ranging aspects of Tai Chi. Robert Chuckrow is a physics Ph.D. as well as a Cheng Man Ching Tai Chi instructor and is able to present Tai Chi Chuan in a manner accessible to Westerners. He comes across as just just another Tai Chi player sharing his experiences. "...well-balanced, down-to-earth, and complete." What's most worthwhile in the book are the detailed descriptions of difficult and not always intuitive terms and concepts, including alignment, breathing, eating, chi, learning Tai Chi, push hands, stances, stretching, the Cheng Man Ching form, and warming up.
