As Grandmaster T. T. Liang would always say ” you need teachers and you need books” He was always sitting with some ancient Chinese book on some part of the art. Grandmaster Chen has a number of books and articles and has been asking me to write. So, here is the first of my published books with many more on the way. A total of 12 planned to cover the Internal Arts. In the meantime, if you need to buy a book on Tai Chi, I have listed a number of essential books below. This list will grow as I find the books that I find essential reading. They are in my library and are well worn. I recommend each one of them. More will be listed as I get time to review what is available in either E Book or hard copy so bookmark this page and come here before you buy.
