I grew up on Golden Age Radio, and while I love to read, I typically consume more books via audio thanks to a job that lets me listen while I work. As an aspiring writer, I try to read a great deal of non-fiction in addition to a variety of fictional genres. I especially love history, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and old-style gothic horror.
For an introductory course on the subject of Qigong, you could do worse than this book. It's informative, and the opening meditations are about as simple as it can get. Even guided, that's not to say they're simple - everyone has their own blocks to work past when it comes to learning how to meditate - but this is definitely a "no fear" approach for those who are curious to begin and aren't sure how to do so.
