|Plot Summary of Chronicles of Tao|
|"This is a very discriptive book about Kwan Saihung, a present day taoist master and his extraodinary journey through life by being a toaist monk, a member of the Peking opera, a Golden Gloves boxer, a martial artist, a warrior, and more. This book mixes in a lot of Taoist principals, as it was written by a taoist and is about a taoist. A wonderful story of a mystical China that no longer exists. "
