Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This book is not a primer on technique, but instead, a primer on the mental aspects of the martial arts. Often, comercial books are flooded with "action" photos, yet, neglecting the most important weapon and training tool - the mind.
This book is also very easy to read, yet, refreshing enough for more mature martial readers to enjoy. The art work is simple and standard, but adequate enough for this excellent text. A great book.
As a perquisite reading, I would recommend Shorin-Ryu Okinawan Karate Question and Answer Book by William Cummins and Robert Scaglione. The "red" book focuses more on facts and history of Okinawan Karate. Just as in my review for the "red" book, I have owned this "green" book for over 12 years now and still reference it often and seem to learn something new every time I pick up the book.
