"This is simply the best book I have ever read on any martial art...If you have ever wondered what the martial arts might have to offer spiritually then read this book. Excellent!"
-Prediction Magazine

"After studying Ron Sieh's book (and trying a few maneuvers in front of the mirror), I feel I could take on two if not three of New York's top-flight muggers. Surely a classic in its field."
-George Plimpton Shadow Box

"I think it is time that T'ai Chi enthusiasts of all school began to take stock of what the art is really about...to move the whole field of study on to something even more real, powerful and honest than what we have been doing up to now. Ron has truly made this his task. Bravo! And like all good teachers he continues to push on. Well done!"
