Form and Will Boxing."One of the Big three Internal Chinese body Boxing styles." written by Lin Jianhua and published by Sugawara Martial arts.1995
Of course this covers the Five element fist and breaks them down describing each fist and its applications. The 12 animal styles are also shown. One point of interest is a rather advanced form that I believe my Sifu taught me called "shi er Heung Chuan" or Twelve earth fist. These forms are accurate,but  I also believe thier are slight differences the way you may perform them; basically they are  the same. Every Master has slight differences in the way he teaches forms. At any rate, You will enjoy this book. Also the author is not from the mainland, he is a Taiwan practitioner of Xing Yi Quan.
