My dad has told me for years that he believed I should pursue Shaolin not just to satisfy my physical activeness but also my mental. This book transcends eye-opening - I'm now searching for the nearest Shaolin temple/center.

The teachings and techniques were well written. Fully grasping the depths of Shaolin wisdom is both bewildering and beguiling - definitely a book that I'll be rereading.

As a practitioner of Chinese Internal Martial Arts, this book was just okay. There was a little too much talk of Yoga in this book for me. And the author went on a bit of a diatribe at the end about technology being bad for us, etc. etc, blah, blah. Kinda ruined my final thoughts about the book.

There were some good chapters giving a nice history of a few arts like Bagua and Xingyi, but over all this book was a bit boring.
