5.0 out of 5 stars Self-Discovery 28 Sep 2001
By Christine Kevorkian - Published on Amazon.com
I just finished reading Stan Wrobel's "Aikido for Self-Discovery"
and enjoyed it tremendously. While I am not a martial artist, I am interested in self-discovery. This book taught me that the awareness and quality of each moment and each movement is what brings about an exciting and new experience. This is certainly what we forget in our rushing about every day. The author says, "Our movements proclaim who we are and how we want to interact with the external world." How many of us are REALLY aware of what we are doing at each moment? For Martial Artists, the book offers suggestions on using oneself with total awareness and effortless action. Excellent book...I recommend it to everyone who is interested in the art of discovering themselves.

1.0 out of 5 stars I didn't like it. 29 Jan 2002
By Michael Terry Lane - Published on Amazon.com
The author may be an excellent teacher/practitioner of aikido but flounders, as have many others, when attempting to translate the experience into print. He describes aikido as process. True and process doesn't lend itself to easy description. Meandering,repetitive, and vague. ( and a little misleading, eg. it would be a very exceptional student who would achieve black belt status after 'four or five years of practice' ). Try Mitsugi Saotome or Richard Heckler for better reads.
