If you haven't got this book yet, get it, you won't be disappointed. Antony Cummins and Yoshie Minami have uncovered a real gem here. The information contained within this book will reveal the inner workings of the shinobi, if anyone is still on the fence about whether the ninja were samurai or not this will erase all doubts. And the in depth discussion and analysis of Sun Tzu's 13th chapter on the use of spies is both intriguing and enlightening.

Out of all the books I have read this has to be the most in depth one to date .The script is a direct translation of authentic shinobi skills and is pretty much the full teachings ninja would receive from masters in the art from both the iga and koga regions of Japan .Everything is fully explained by chickamatsu shigenori who travelled ancient Japan at the dawn of the shinobi era and recorded the teachings of the last living shinobi. Definitely A must have book for anyone either interested in ninja or in Asian history as a whole .A real gem of a book with good artwork but not too much to overcrowd the text and comes in a nice hardback edition certainly A must buy!!!!

Anyone who knows anything about Ninja know that both Iga and Koka are very important parts of a larger puzzle, many say that the Bansenshukai was written by Iga no mono (men of iga) some say the same about koka, in a nutshell though, this is a book that has been translated from a scroll compiled by Chikamatsu Shigenori who spent time with both, men of iga and men of koka learning boths traditions they had trained in for 100s of years, it also has an in depth commentary on the art of war from the perspective of Ninjas, its an essential read.
