The content is interesting but boy the readers are annoying. It kept changing readers in between and two of the reader have strong chinese accent. For audio book purpose, it is very hard to understand the accent unless you concentrate very hard.
Grate book, easy narrative for such a complex topic, very well explained, absolutely recommended for all the people interested in east philosophy and even martial arts
"A decent enough overview."
Gives the basic ideas, but nothing I've not read before in basic introductory guides. Comical and unnecessary Chinese accents for the quotes. Not bad for a less than 3 hour introduction, but not mind blowing!
"the pronounciation spoils the otherwise fantastic"
comprehensive, learned and accesssible - but dreadful pronounciation of the chinese names! i guess lynn redgrave is trying to fake a chinese accent, which he is quite successful at, but his pronounciation of the chinese names betrays his non-chinese origin, hence we are left with a narrator who speaks neither proper chinese nor proper english. a real shame given that the script is actually very good
