A very interesting take on chi, co-authored by a chi gong veteran and a psychiatrist.

This book shares the concept of chi, chi gongs role in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and how chi gong was suppressed during the Chinese Cultural Revolution but is facing a big resurgence in China and the various scientific studies done to support its efficacy for health including curing cancer.

There is so much info, I will read it again and write a better review after.
