After a long long time I finally finished reading this book. Admittedly, I skimmed a few sections that I'm not ready for yet, such as the chapter covering push hands. I would recommend that any other newbies to Tai Chi start off with Chapter 8 "On Being a Student" and then work through the other sections of the book as you get to the various topics in your class.

I'm getting through it! Currently on page 81. Yay, me!

Got board near the end, and the picture did not quite do justice from what I have learned in person in a class.

Good thoughts. Not a photo book or step by step, but there are plenty of those.
