Publisher's Summary

In this beautifully illustrated offering of ancient wisdom, Deng Ming-Dao shares the secrets of the spiritual path handed down to him by Kwan Saihung, his Taoist master, as well as by herbalists, martial artists, and other practitioners of the ancient arts. Deng tells how Taoist philosophy and practice may be integrated into contemporary Western lifestyles for complete physical, mental, and spiritual health. He provides an abundance of philosophical and practical information about hygiene, diet, sexuality, physical exercise, meditation, medicine, finding one's purpose in life, finding the right teacher, death, and transcendence.

    "Good book with missable sections"

    Very interesting look at Taoist philosophy and its practical implications in the lifestyle of the warrior scholar.
    Traditional Chinese Medicine sections are definitely missable however, unless you buy into this area. Easy to skip these sections, however, and still enjoy the book :)

    "Worth it!"

    Highly recommended for not just the martial artist, but any who seek more understanding of the Tao/Dao.

    "Not good for listening in the car"
    Would you try another book from Ming-Dao Deng and/or Fred Sanders?

    There is some interesting information in this book, but as I listen to most of my books on the commute to work, it has some parts that can't be done in the car. There are many exercises described which might be good in a calm room, but I wish I had known about this before purchasing the book.


    Would you recommend Scholar Warrior to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, if they were going to listen in a calm room

    Story
    "A book of highs and lows"

    Parts of this book are excellent. Rather than just giving a philosophical account of Daoism the discussion of the development of qigong and other Daoist art forms is interesting. Sadly the book as a whole doesn't really work as an audio book because of a number of lists which just don't translate to the spoken word. There are also qigong sets described in detail, though these might be very useful on their own they are less so in an audio book that you might be playing while you drive and find you can't skip easily. It's also a bit annoying that the American narrator calls herbs "erbs". Pronunciation of Chinese terms sound good though I'm in no position to verify them. Overall it's interesting but maybe not so good as an audio book.

    "Best book on the Tao that I've experienced so far!"

    I enjoyed this audiobook so much that I ordered a hard copy while yet half way through and even the hard copy had it's own jewels of wisdom. Scholar Warrior is a book I could find myself going back to year in, year out.
