About the Author
Wang Mu (1908-92) received the Longmen ordination in his youth. He taught Internal Alchemy (Neidan) and, in his own country, was held in high regard by both practitioners and Taoist scholars. He served as a board member of the China Taoist Association and was for some time in charge of its research activities. He is known outside China mainly for his annotated edition of the "Wuzhen pian" (Awakening to Reality), the text at the basis of the outline of Internal Alchemy that he provides in the present book.

The only problem I had with it was figuring out what I know about the Taoist Three Treasures of jing (essence), chi (breathe, and shen (spirit) and realizing that was what he is talking about. I had to look at the occasion phoneticized Chinese names to figure this out.
The next time I will take notes because there are a lot of words that seem to mean more or less the same, and few of them mean technically what I thought they meant.
Good for the refinining , as addition to the other sources of knowledge.
