Good discussion of posture and specifics on how to hold the hands, etc. Discusses the need to keep the motions flowing and circular (like Yin-Yang). Very helpful. Each of the Yang-24 moves is photographed with written details. Also photos are sequenced as thumbnails so you can view the whole. A bit difficult to follow but helpful for review. At the end of the book is a nice set of pressure point exercises for the eyes. Planning on buying a used copy for reference.
