What would have made The Power of Chi better?
As an educator I would give the author an F. He is too abstract and does not connect the dots for you to use his information to apply to everyday living. Also his interpretation of the Tao is contradictory. He talks at too high a level of abstraction.I have taught Tai Chi for over 20 years. His messages gets weighed down in complexity.
What was most disappointing about Robert Pino’s story?
His use of the concept of Chi is confusing and scattered.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
His narration lacked sincerity. He comes across as looking to make money off a concept that's hard to understand.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power of Chi?
He should have reduced the pages and simplify his message into a powerful tool for people.Maybe he is writing to all his future executive accounts.
Any additional comments?
If you want to read a practical way to apply the Tao and Tai Chi I would highly recommend combining "The Way of The Urban Warrior" and 'Change Your Thought Change Your Life"The are powerful applications of Chi and Taoist healing techniques that will transform your life....instead of some abstractions by someone targeting a wealthy clientele for profit.

If you could sum up The Power of Chi in three words, what would they be?
Good book, well-written and narrated.
What about Robert Pino’s performance did you like?
The narrator is good.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Worse to use time.
What did you like most about The Power of Chi?
I liked the insight it gave me into certain aspects of ancient Chinese philosophy. However I was expecting more in the way of exercises to enhance my Chi. It seemed to be more about psychology than energy practices but then maybe I just don't understand enough. I also felt that the early chapters were better. The later ones seemed to be more in the way of waffle to fill space.
What other book might you compare The Power of Chi to, and why?
I have books on Feng Shui and also I Ching. I guess it could compare with these.
Have you listened to any of Robert Pino’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No I haven't listened.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Several but I don't remember where.
