These writings by Kung Fu master Adam Hsu were originally monthly magazine columns that aimed to correct the many misconceptions about Kung Fu in films, books, and in the words of errant teachers. The book is divided into eight themed sections, covering foundations, concepts, principles, styles and forms, usage, training, the future of kung fu, and its place in our lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Very well written book of stories and philosophies."-- BestJudo.com
"I find that this book is greatly helpful when in the hands of a novice martial artist seeking Kung-fu instruction."-- A Ronin's Review
"This is a book that should be on every martial artist's shelf, taken down often for reference. It is a book that should be discussed: with colleagues, with instructors, with fellow students. It is a book to be read more than once."-- Plum Publications
"I think that Adam Hsu makes some convincing arguments. He has solid points and clearly states his ideas, not only with examples from his past but also with analogies that a westerner could understand. Some of the things that he said seemed to be a little one sided, however others made perfect sense. I would recommend this book for any one who is interested in learning about a famous Chinese martial art."-- Robert Agnew, DCTaekwondo
