Succinct, clear treatise on Qi Gong

This beautifully illustrated book is a fantastic introduction to the history of Qi Gong, understanding different types of Qi Gong, benefits of Qi Gong, and how it fits into Traditional Chinese Medicine. It serves as great background, but this thin volume provides only minimal information on how to practice Qi Gong. If you're interested in more in-depth, practical information, I can recommend: Qigong Empowerment (Liang & Wu) which has a wealth of Qigong exercises including for specific conditions, and The Way of Qigong (Cohen), which provides quite a bit of background as well as a number of exercises. Qigong is awesome -- give it a try!


Master Tzu Kuo Shih has put together a very good book for anyone who is new to qi gong. The book does not demonstrate any physical techniques, rather it lays the foundation for why qi gong works the way it does. This book is a must for any one who is interested in the origins of qigong in regards to traditional chinese medicine. Book is more TCM based than martial art based.
