My favourite books
Tai Chi: The Story of a Chinese Master in America is a novel by Marc Meyer, a fellow Tai Chi instructor and musician from Naples, Florida.
The book has a number of strands running though it. There is the story of the Master, coming to America and teaching Tai Chi, the concept of Family, Tradition, Tai Chi concepts and history, Drug and Alcohol abuse, Tragedy and Children becoming Adults bridging the culture between East and West.
Marc Meyer touches on all of these in a gentle and skilful manner. He weaves a compelling story pulling these themes together in a way that made me want to read the book and find out what happens to all the characters. I was not disappointed.
You can find it on Amazon.
