I really enjoyed this book.  It was nice to see a more complete text where some have published this book but only in partial format.  Most of it seems to actually have been written by Chen Wei Ming, and Dong Yingjie.  These were two well-known students of Yang Cheng Fu, with Chen being a prominent writer, and Dong having seen his lineage transferred into modern times.  I once studied Dong style through students of Dong Kai Ying and Alex Dong.  Chen Wei Ming, in addition to being one of Yang Cheng Fu’s prominent students, was also a Xingyiquan student of Sun Lu Tang.
