Teacher, translator and Tai Ji master, Gia Fu-Feng is remembered for his colorful life in which he learned and taught alongside some of the twentieth century's greatest writers and thinkers, including Jack Kerouac and Alan Watts. Through his life and work, he sought to bring the ancient wisdom of the Tao into the modern world. His translation of the Tao Te Ching has sold over 1,250,000 copes and is widely considered to be one of the most readable and influential translations of our time. His translation of Chuang Tsu: Inner Chapters, now published by Amber Lotus in a 35th anniversary edition, has sold over 150,000 copies.

Still Point represents thirteen years of research by dedicated author Carol Ann Wilson, sister to Gia-fu's heir. Using Gia-fu's biographical notes and numerous outside sources, Wilson has given us the extraordinary story of a rogue Taoist sage.
