The book "Training Methods of 72 Arts of Shaolin" by Jin Jing Zhong is devoted to the most enigmatic and little-known aspect of training of Shaolin monks. The book was written in 1934 with blessing and direct participation of the Head of the Shaolin Monastery Reverend Miao Xing nicknamed "The Golden Arhat," one of the best Shaolin fighters of all times. For the first time the book describes full training methods in all 72 Shaolin Arts. Being until recently for outsiders the most secret part of training of Shaolin monks, which made them invulnerable in fight, 72 Shaolin Arts at the present time become available to all who are ready to practice them persistently and with an open heart. Training methods described in the book allow to develop supernatural abilities, far beyond abilities of an ordinary man. The book has been translated from the Chinese language for the first time.

Authentic Shaolin Treasure - Worth Its Weight in Gold
I have read more than sixty books on Shaolin Gong Fu (both in English and Chinese), and this book is the most informative of them all. Book
reveals Main Secrets of Shaolin Gong Fu never published in the Western World before – genuine training methods of all 72 Secret Arts of Shaolin monks. Book was written in 1934 under the direction of the Abbot of the Shaolin Monastery Miao Xing 'Golden Arhat' due to a huge fire in 1928 that burnt down Shaolin and overwhelming part of its manuscripts. The book is an attempt to preserve the Shaolin Heritage for future generations… Undoubtedly, an unique book for any martial artist!
