Has anyone read Wong Kiew Kit's books on Shaolin Kung Fu and Tai Chi Chuan? Anything interesting in there, worth buying?

I got the Shaolin Kungfu, not too interesting to tell the truth, explains some basics on training followed by pictures and explanations of two forms. I wouldnt Re- buy it.

I think he has a number of books on Shaolin Kungfu though... the longer ones that I have breezed through looked a bit more informative.

I've read both. Judging from your postings, it will be too basic for you. At the same time it is frustrating for a beginner. There are lots of general hints here and there, but no actual useful training regime that you can bite into; so if anyone expects a training manual, forget it.

But for an advanced practitioner, Master Wong's 'read-between-the-lines' comments are quite entertaining in the way he 'appears' to divulge something important and then hold back just in time to keep whatever secrets he wants hidden intact.
I'll rather be happy than right, anytime.

It has a comparison between different kung fu styles and some history. But other than that, I read nothing that would interest me. Maybe the qigong part.
Maybe, like ButterflyPalm said, you have to read between the lines, so I`d have to read it again. I doubt I found find much useful new info though. I defenetly wouldn`t rebuy it.
