You could just buy Tim's Sun style book. You won't find a more practical manual on the subject. http://www.amazon.com/Traditional-Style-Taijiquan-Saddleback-College-CPS7/dp/007 8039142/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1383472267&sr=8-2&keywords=sun+style+tai+chi
Thanks, I have it and is excellent. But I would also have this book.
You aren't missing anything. Not to mention WL's posture is completely wrong in his Sun Taiji.
Glad you enjoyed the text!
I think your reply is for Igor? But I agree none the less.
Jake,the book has nothing to do with WL.It is a translation of a book written by Sun Jianyun.However,after reading the book I would have to agree that it is not a worthwhile buy.
Its a basic book on Sun style that mentions a few applications.It does contain one or two interesting points such as a counter force when moving backwards and forwards and the height that the form is done at.Apparently you should lower your stance as you progress and go to the lowest variant after seven years.
It is not a Wing Lam book, but as Tony said is an Chinese/English book by Sun Jianyun.
There are not many books on the Sun style so whatever is aviable is worth to have, IMHO.
I found a person on FB who sold me the book. :-) It will arrive to me in the next week. :-)
Here is the description from the Plum Pubcations: Some books are nothing less than essential. For the Sun style enthusiast this is a keystone written by the famous instructor's own daughter who practiced for over 70 years. Well written in a generally good presentation this book discusses the Sun style with its key points, Sun Jian Yun's life, the breakdown of the form with written examples of usage, key points to remember in practice and historical notes. Our only criticism is that the photographs are rather small. On the other hand there are specifics about, for instance, Sun footwork which are very helpful in understanding the fundamentals of this branch.
Do you know for any other book on Sun style Tai Chi (in English) beside the book "A study of Taijiquan"? Thanks.
If it ain't on google it doesn't exist
this is a great one (and there is also a 5-DVD set which compliments the book nicely)

He claims he already has it. IMO the DVD set is worth more than all books on the subject combined. By studying the DVDs you get te benefits from the book without having to know any of it. The book helps you talk about it better though.
Second chapter is pure genius! LOL!
The book "SUN'S Style Tai Chi Chuan" by Sun Jian Yun and Paul F. N. Tam is out of print. I was not able to find an used copy to buy. :-(
Also the author Tam said that they are not planning to make another print unless there are large demand.
So if anybody has a copy of the book and don't need it, I could buy it.
Sell you mine for $1,000
U R not my friend. :-P
My last chance it to get the PDF file from the author of the book. So I have just to re-print my own copy. ;-)
However, a friend from France has sent to me his book, because he don't need it. :-)
BTW, it would be nice to have the Tim Cartmell's book in Hard-cover edition. Anybody know it it will be aviable in a more thick edition?
Unfortunately, my Sun style textbook won't be available in hard cover.
I will need some guidance on the Sun Form when I get back.
A few months from now.
Cool, look me up when you get back.
I'm looking forward to it.
