Comments:
Excellent guide

This book will motivate you to get out and walk. The five mindful steps of ChiWalking are described in depth including alignment and balance. Chi skills, i.e., flexibility and breathing are discussed along with ChiWalking techniques. Twelve different walking plans are provided allowing you to design your own walking program. My personal favorite in the book is the section on hiking.

I do, however, have one small complaint. The covers on my copy, both front and back, curl up like a paper towel roll. While not critical to the contents, it could have an adverse impact on the longevity of the book if you, like me, go back to reference the information multiple times and then bend the covers while sliding the it back in the bookcase. Even with my curly covers, though, this is one of the best walking guides I've read and I would definitely recommend it for your walking pleasure.
