Reviews

'In ancient Chinese culture, the oral traditions and old practices of the Immortals played a major part - especially in the Taoist Dao Zang. Modern research into the Classics does not attach much importance to the study of these texts... Richard has made a truly precious contribution.'
- Professor Dr Bo-Ying Ma MD, MA, PhD, Chairman of Federation of Traditional Chinese Medicine (UK)

'The teachings of this book are a true treasure trove for the Daoist practitioner.'
- From the Foreword by Master Zhongxian Wu, lifelong Daoist practitioner and author of 12 books (5 in Chinese) on Chinese wisdom traditions.
