I read this book ten years ago and typed out dozens and dozens of quotes from it because I thought it was so wonderful. I do tai chi, chi gong and I teach art and I am very interested in art history. I found this book in our local library. I was AMAZED that it had this book. I recently reread those pages of quotes and wanted to take it out of the library again, but our library has gotten rid of it.

Title fits the book perfectly - in fact it could have been written in Chinese. It is a collection of translated quotes from Chinese sources on rules and critique of Chinese painting through the ages. The author adds his own comments here and there but in places, I found the book nearly incoherent.
