Thanks my friend! I actually have started on the audiobook. Decided to do it myself. I'll send you a sample when I got it up to some decent quality. :) 

Already did the raw cut of first 5 chapters :D

Ohhh. Thank you I am very much looking forward to that!

 

One of the things that is really great about this book is the pace of it, just when I was thinking it was slowing down and loosing momentum you stomped on the accelerator. Caught myself laughing a few times over that and thinking oh Gawd hah! 

 

As I feared the very thing I was afraid of with your book came to pass it ended far too soon even though I stretched it out reading and absorbing and savoring the pages.

 

When I got to the end it was like having to say goodbye to some new good friends I had made while reading the story.  

 

Now I am eager to read the next book and think wow, what a monumental challenge you have created for yourself to match up to the first book.

 

To those reading this I want to point out there are many spiritual truths that are made very clear by Dwai in this book in a very interesting story. There are even effective practices given,  this book is truly worth the time and the money, without a doubt.

Hi Dwai, your book was just delivered by my courier this afternoon, I picked it up in Vilcabamba just a little while ago.  It's the second book I've gotten which was signed by the author, the first one was signed in person by my Yang tai chi teacher/grandfather, grandmaster Tchoung Ta Tchen, so you're in good company.   I'm going to start on it this evening.

@dwai I wanted to let you know that my wife got me your book for Christmas. I recently finished it. I read a lot. I have to confess, though, that it's the first time that I have read a book strictly for enjoyment and not with the intent of learning something (business, programming, Qigong, ...) in over 15 years. That's not to say I didn't learn anything, in fact, I learned plenty. I ended up researching the mythological entities that were described in the book. Also, reading the book strengthened my resolve to commit to doing more Zhan Zhuang. I enjoyed the story and look forward to the next one. Thank you for being an encouraging presence here on TDB and giving me the opportunity to realize I can read just for fun again.

🙏🏾 I’m glad you enjoyed the book. Please do leave a review on Amazon and goodreads.com to help the book climb up on Amazon’s algorithm if it’s not too much trouble :)

I enjoyed reading The Mahasiddha Field quite a lot.  It is a rousing fast paced adventure story with several story lines masterfully blended together.  What was neat about this book, and rare, is the way the author blended together spiritual truths and knowledge, highest level tai chi internal arts combat methods, and ancient Vedic history, into a fascinating science fiction adventure.  Many people will not know about or be able believe the spiritual or internal martial arts accounts, but that would not detract from the story for them.  It was nice though, to read about such things in an adventure story.

Thanks for the wonderful review Steve! I much appreciate your support and encouragement, as well as the feedback you provided via email (which I've taken to heart now).
