    Default Would You Pay $70,000 For Books?

    Personally, I'm leaning toward a "yes", because of all the books based on Shaolin Martial Arts, this looks to be the cream of the crop. One problem, I don't know Mandarin Chinese.

    Take a look and tell me what you think.

    maybe you read the wrong price tag. They're saling for $360 but it still seems like you'd have to learn Mandarin to get the full benefit out of these. The knowledge would be dope to have no doubt.

    Ordering Intructions: The four volumes of the Shaolin Martial Arts Encyclopedia are in hardback. The total price which includes shipping to any country in the world has been reduced to $360. USD.

    The weight of the books including the packaging is approximately 16 pounds. Shipping from the Shaolin Academy in northern China is by China Post air freight and the normal delivery time to the U.S or to Europe is approximately 2 to 3 weeks from the date we receive your payment for the order.

    Note: If you are ordering by credit card, be sure to include your phone number and area code in the PayPal order form message box so your local post office can call you if no one is at the address you list with PayPal to receive the books from the postal delivery person. We will not ship the books until we have a phone number and area code where you can be reached during the daytime hours.

    If for some other reason you cannot use PayPal to pay with your credit card, please airmail an international bank's Cashiers Check to the following address. Please make the Cashiers Check payable to: Che Wen Long.

    with that much money i would just invest in a library.

    There are rich enough people that dont know what to buy anymore so they just make a library in their house and start buying a bunch of books. trouble is you would then need to hire a librarian to organize it or you wont be able to find anything.

    Visions, Ben, thanks for the clarification.

    I have to admit, I just skimmed through and saw that 70 g's and was like .

    No doubt though, the only other books that come close, are "Shaolin Gong Fu: A Course In Traditional Forms." Which is like 5 books all together, and "The 72 Secret Arts of The Shaolin Temple." Rigorous training methods laid down in that one.

    Imma see how many copies of this set are left though.

    Slippy, what styles do you know? No B.S. either. You sound like one of those dudes on a N.Y.C. subway car.

    If the mind is open to find it, true knowledge can be found anywhere, from a book to a thunderstorm.
