Additional Information

Now 101 years old, Master T. T. Liang came to the U.S. from Taiwan in the 1960s to introduce t'ai chi to America. His life story is full of the stuff that makes a great martial arts adventure: a career as a high-ranking government official, street fights and shootouts, opium dens and prostitutes, mystical martial arts masters and monks—the story of a life lived to the absolute maximum. Twenty-five photographs add to the captivating life story of this great t'ai chi master.

Just re-read it again.
This book is about T. T. Liang and his two top students.
The stories are wonderful and always make me smile.
This book also holds a wonderful secret for many in the middle
on how to improve and refine what ever style of T'ai Chi they enjoy.
A must read.
Nice Personal story , no technical instruction.

I got my first glimpse of real martial art in a park in Guangzhou, when a kind teacher taught me, without even telling me the name of his art.
A year later, I found out that what he taught me was Yiquan, and I have practiced Yiquan ever since
First I wanted to make a brief comment on the one very negative review, which said Olson's book wasn't even well written. Come on, it's perfectly competent writing and well edited. I know because I spent 7 years working as an editor and writer in the publishing field, and the book is just fine as far as the quality of the writing and editing goes.
