    "Good intro"

    Nice broad stroke review. Can't believe that the narrator says ex-specially. Enjoyed the 12 step breathing exercise.

    "Short but just what I needed"

    If you are interested in learning more about Tai Chi but unsure about attending a class it is worth buying. The author does a great job packing information in a short format without overwhelming or losing the essence.

    "great value for under $5"

    the author touches on the principles but does not walk the listener through specific techniques of striking or blocking. rather, he explained the breathing, posture, and mentality. ultimately everything you need outside of jet li films at an affordable price to begin low speed practice emulating YouTube videos. as an active full contact mma athlete new to the Chinese ways, I would recommend the practical Kung fu student listen to this book and this book only for wushu on audible because more expensive books can't teach you much beyond what is included here without visual demonstration anyway. the only chi elements I've found useful in the ring while sparing, honestly, are the breathing, looseness, posture, and other foundational principles of this art. I don't recommend audible for learning strikes, let this be your only expenditure on audible for Tai Chi .
