I have been blessed with people around me who make my path easier to walk, people who hold me steady when I am in danger of slipping; this book could not have been written without them. To Elias then, without whose support I would never have journeyed so far into the forgotten side of ourselves. To my students and friends at the Wenwukuan, many of whom train much more fiercely than I ever did; you are, each and every one of you, my brothers and sisters. There was once a man in China who liked pictures of dragons. His clothing and his furniture were therefore accordingly adorned with dragons. It is said that he promptly died of fright.

Explains the science behind the practice of nei kung, the elemental nature of yin and yang energy--the two components of ch'i, and how learning to control the yang energy in our ch'i can result in the release of dynamic energy.
In Kosta Danaos was accepted as a student by John Chang, a Chinese-Javanese Taoist in the Mo-Pai tradition and a master of nei kung , the practice of harnessing and controlling our body's bioenergy, or ch'i.
Nei Kung: The Secret Teachings of the Warrior Sages describes the practice of nei kung and how learning to control our ch'i can result in the release of dynamic energy that can be used for healing, pyrogenesis, telekinesis, levitation, telepathy, and more. Danaos suggests that both components of ch'i--yin and yang energy--are fundamental to the earth and to life and were recognized and used in many of the world's ancient cultures.
Though we have forgotten how to access them, these components are in fact elemental parts of us. The author explains that we first must open our minds to the fact that the power of ch'i is real. Next, in learning to control our ch'i as a whole, we must learn to channel our yang energy in productive ways--a potential we all possess. To help readers understand their capacity to connect with this inner elemental power, the author offers a fascinating blend of teachings that include sound scientific theories explaining much of the "magic" of nei kung.
He also offers historical, linguistic, artistic, and literary proof of the presence and understanding of nei kung throughout the ages and a step-by-step introduction to several types of simple meditation--fundamental to directing one's ch'i. With his engaging storytelling and disarming humor, his physics-based explanations for seemingly mystical phenomena, and his reassurances that he's really no different from the rest of us, Kosta Danaos shows us that once we remember our capacity to harness our yang energy, we can change ourselves and our world.

Like his previous book I also liked this one. Although at the end of his previous book he started get somewhat personal about his views which continues in his second book.
It's like admitting that history is something that is not what it seems to be and also never documented from an objective point of view. I must disappoint you if you are looking for a book that show you how to become a Nei-Kung expert or even show you basic techniques, this book is not the book.
He talks more about history and personal experiences and views on this realm of existence. I also must ad that such book will never exist, same way as there never will exist a book that will tell you exactly how to meditate.
It feels to me that this his a part that's keeping him from evolving to what he wants's to be. He seems to be to concerned with the ideal ideas of the western views which probably become a blockage in believing in the true nature of life and yourself. At some point's he does not go far enough but maybe he does not want to. He talks about having problems with his sexuality and although hes read most things about meditation and eastern philosophy he does not seems to know or does not want to tell the reader about tantric yoga or about harnessing sexual energy during sex which will improve his practice.
Also if hes that keen of proving his theories, he should go more into the scientific point of view of orgone energy from Wilhelm Reich which he does, but only strikes the surface. Which disappointed me some what, like in his previous book he talks about working with scientist and his master, what does happen but he does say much about it which could be his personal fight with the west. It's a good book and I like his style. He seems to know what hes doing and therefore staying in the mystic field and true to his nature and master.

Nei Kung: Secret Teachings of the Warrior Sages
It is challenging, diverse, mixing personal experience, concrete technique and informed speculation into something that is less a synthesis than a series of thematically-related inspirational materials. In one passage, Danaos finds himself conversing with the spirits of a mountain in Greece, who ask him to intervene to stop a strip-mining operation. The Eastern Christian mystical tradition is filled with similar phenomena as well. Consideration and study of these beings, in whatever mode they may exist, is more than timely as we are faced with the damage done to the earth by modern man.
