"There Are No Secrets" by Wolfe Lowenthal


Part insight to the influential Tai Chi Professor, part sagely advice on how to practice Tai Chi, and part one man’s personal search for meaning, There Are No Secrets is composed of many short untitled chapters that relate these parts in an almost wandering way. Each chapter is self-contained and brief enough to drive the point without pontificating. Lowenthal’s “relaxed” style is invigorating and helps the overall flow of the book making it a joy to read.
