Recommends it for: Internal martial artists
This book is absolutely stellar. Damo Mitchell has the ability to write very simply about nei gong theory and practice. I am now at the point where I’m finished ‘reading’ and am beginning to work with the practices. I’ll keep you updated.

I’m including some vid links of Damo demonstrating Nei Gong, as well as other internal martial arts:

This is an excellent introduction to Nei Gong.

One of the most profound read I've ever read. This book has enrich my "spiritual quest" and added new aspect to that journey. The best explanation of the human energy system of meridians and centers are organized I've come across so far. Great straight forward explanations, great positive read, I've loved it. Thanks Foxthyme!

This book is easy to read and the most informative on Nei Gong I've personally read. Written from personal experience it really comes across that he knows what he's talking about. If you're reading this then you're interested enough to buy it, it's worth it.

Without a doubt the best introduction to Nei Gong I ever found. Clear and complete for what a book can give. Helped me clear a lot of doubts on Nei Gong practice and theory.

Fantastic stuff. I'm not sure I can follow the external exercises based on the instructions/photos (my fault, not MItchell's), but the Sung breathing is remarkably clear.
