I recently read this book Tai Chi in 10 weeks, by Dr. Aihan Kuhn, from cover to cover.

This is an excellent book for a beginner like me. The step-by-step is a critical point in learning tai chi. I really like the planning guide at the end of the book. With this guide you can write in what step you are at and then use the plan for further evaluation. I also liked the psychological aspects of the book. And I absolutely love the color photos.
This is a great introduction into Tai Chi. I knew nothing when I began, but after reading, I feel I have a grasp of what I am suppose to learn. I would love to find a local teacher to learn more, but Kuhn offers great instruction through pictures and descriptions of the Tai Chi form. Even more importantly she goes into great detail about why Taiji and qigong are so beneficial for the mind and body. I recommend this book for anyone interested in learning more about a way to pursue natural living ...more
