It is a very good book to learn Tai Chi for beginner, especially 24 postures with martial applications (because 48 postures didn't have martial applications in this book).
The pictures is nice and big enough so the reader can see the detail with ease.
Recomended to learn with DVD, the master Shou-Yu Liang move is very detailed and easy to follow.
