Purchasing Tai Chi Chuan Books and Magazines


Most of the webpages at the Cloud Hands website, include bibliographies and weblinks.
The largest list of I have provided for recommended books, videotapes, DVDs, and audiotapes
is called: Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong Links and Bibliography.

I highly recommend purchasing Tai Chi Chuan and Qi Gong books, videotapes, audiotapes,
CDs, DVDs, and supplies from Wayfarer Publications.  They have been in business since
1981.  You can get more information at the Wayfarer website.  You can place telephone
orders at 800-888-9119.  They offer a useful print version of the Wayfarer Publications 
.  They also publish the fine quarterly magazine: T'ai Chi Magazine.   You can write 
to them at: Wayfarer Publications, P. O. Box 39938, Los Angeles, CA 90039.  Their selection 
is quite extensive, but a few good titles are missing from their fine print catalog.  I have 
found their service to be excellent, the staff helpful, and orders promptly and accurately handled.  
The annotations in their 50 page catalog are brief but informative.  

I also provide links to Amazon.com for the books and videotapes cited at this website.
Oftentimes, the Amazon entry will have additional information, reviews, and links
to related books.  You can get the same items from Barnes & Noble, Powell's Books,
and elsewhere.  I provide full bibliographic information when possible, including 
the ISBN number to facilitate searching with other new or used booksellers.  

If any authors or publishers would like me to review their publications, please send them 
to: Michael P. Garofalo, 23005 Kilkenny Lane, Red Bluff, CA 96080.  I'm a retired person, 
so donations, grants, gifts, students, and others means of support are very much 
appreciated.   Webmasters are welcome to send information about their websites to 
me by e-mail for consideration and link exchanges.  I welcome inquiries by telephone:
