    Helped meI am 77 years old and had a complete knee replacement surgery three weeks ago and am already walking without a limp I am a Tai Chi for Arthritis Instructor and have resumed teaching two classes I credit much of my rapid recuperation to Tai Chi and Dr Lam’s philosophy My muscles allowed me to have good control even though I have never been what you would call athletic The principles of Tai Chi are real helping the Mind Body and Spirit This book by Dr Lam is wonderful It has made me even an enthusiast of his It has helped me to understand him his program and the influence he has

    In his memoir Born Strong From Surviving the Great Famine to Teaching Tai Chi to Millions tai chi master and family physician Dr Paul Lam describes his journey from a malnourished and arthritic child – helplessly trapped and completely powerless during Chairman Mao’s disastrous Great Leap Forward – to achieving his dreams of helping heal himself and millions of others This inspiring account both documents the healing power of tai chi and assures us that a sense of curiosity and a will to learn and to work hard will allow us to overcome even seemingly insurmountable obstacles in our lives

At any moment the author could have given up but he was motivated by the most important person in his life his beloved AuntTai Chi instills inner and outer strength discipline flexibility and harmony in the mind body and soul The author always had these ualities within him but he needed Tai Chi to bring them out into the open for all to see I have always been curious about Tai Chi and am now inspired to learn I don’t take this lightly at all and need this in my own life What the author’s Aunt taught him about inner strength and pure love goes beyond words I just hope to be even a little bit like Aunt to my own nephew and nieceI received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review

    Dr Lam has made tai chi accessible to thousands of people around the world The story of his childhood in China living through hunger and massive cultural and political change was both interesting and heartbreaking I would have liked to know about his tai chi teachers and what it was like studying different styles over his lifetime

    Paul Lam has lived an incredible life and has come out on top to teach tai chi to millions as well as be a genuinely nice person Even if you are not interested in the tai chi aspects of the book understanding what happened to the people in China when Mao took over is a good history lesson

    I borrowed this book from our Tai Chi teacher who is a devotee of Paul Lam It is an amazing autobiography and it's a wonder he survived at all I found the English a little clunky at times but it is nevertheless an inspiring read
