Audible Editor Reviews

A biographical narrative that traces the life of the Chinese mystic Saihung Kwan. The story follows Kwan's training in martial arts, qigong, herbalism, and other traditional Chinese practices, from the time he was a boy living in Taoist monasteries in the 1920s through the horrors of Japan's invasion of China in the 1930s. Throughout the story, Taoist teachings are interwoven with fantastic stories set among exotic locales. This is a book that has been beloved for years by those interested in Eastern medicine, and performer Ronin Wong's deep voice makes for a satisfying listen.

    "Great read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great book. What initially interested me in reading this was statements by author and my interest in both Daoism and Chinese martial arts. The story follows the life of a young boy who eventually becomes a monk at HuaShan on his journey towards enlightenment. It is both informative and entertaining. At times it reads like a childrens fairytale. I'm glad I purchased it. A must for anyone who practices Chinese Martial Arts... especially the Daoist practices like Tai Chi.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great story.


    Which character – as performed by Ronin Wong – was your favorite?

    The reader did a great job with all the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to it at half speed. I believe it took me about 3 days during work hours. Back forth between this and other audio books.


    Any additional comments?

    I will purchase more by this author.
