Cheng Man-ch'ing by Cheng Man-ch'ing
Book DescriptionCheng Man-ch'ing wrote this series of essays to make various points of classical Chinese philosophy understandable to beginning readers. Hennessy does a wonderful job in translating this work, as well as providing the classical references for each essay, giving a historical context for a western reader without the necessary background. In his continuing effort to show the artistic and scholarly vision of Professor Cheng, Mark Hennessy has brought out not only the subtle depth of Cheng s interpretation of these classics, but his humor, sly wit, and awareness of cultural change."

Books By Author Cheng Man-ch'ing
T'ai Chi, Paperback (March 2005)
The Chinese secret for youthfulness, health and long life lies at least partly in T'ai Chi, the ballet like callisthenics they've practiced for centuries.
Master Cheng's New Method of Tai Chi Self-cultivation, Paperback (June 1999)
A guide to Tai Chi Chuan, written in response to the popularity of Cheng's simplified 37-posture form as presented in "13 Chapters on Tai Chi Chuan". The text offers analysis of each movement, in language plain enough for an unexperienced beginner to use the book to learn and master the postures.
Master of Five Excellences, Paperback (March 1996)View all books by Cheng Man-ch'ing

This inspiring book is a compendium of his heretofore untranslated writings and pictorial interpretations of these subjects. Photos, some in color.
