Not that I liked the whole book or even most of it. In my opinion these 23 pages alone were worth the price of the book. At pages this is a substantial book. It conveys not only a solid collection of the basic material for someone to pursuit learning taiji, it is in very good English I assume through the efforts of Greg Bissel. The information is clear, well translated and does not resort to esotericism. It can be considered a comprehensive work.
