I'm constantly adding to my library of martial arts books and ordered this one based strictly on the huge number of positive Amazon book reviews which accompany its listing. I have to confirm what everyone else says -- Forest Morgan hits home with solid information that is viable for all martial artists from white belt to black belt. Although I study Taekwondo myself, I certainly have great respect for all martial arts styles and always learn something of value from each of them. The real beauty of "Living the Martial Way" is its accuracy and profound insights that apply to martial artists of all styles and ranks and backgrounds. Outstanding book, belongs right up there with the classics of this field.

5.0 out of 5 stars A requirement for any martial arts library 18 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A great book explaining the bushido and how to work to achieve honourable living. Also a great book on the physical aspects of training to be a martial warrior. A must-have for those serious about the martial arts and what the arts represent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Say 10 Mar 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Being a classically trained martial artisit, I found this book to be insightful and certainly worth the time, money and energy to read. The Major downfall to this book, that I have never found in a true classic on this Way of Life, was the repeated insistence on the superiority of this Way of Life over the others. Still, it is a good book, but one that should not be taken too seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read Manual for Every Martial Artist! 26 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is actually my second copy of this book (I've worn the first copy out!) A must read for every Martial Artist. Mr. Morgan puts together and explains so many of the facets of things that are missing in most "modern" Martial Arts schools today. If studied and learned properly the topics detailed in this book will bring the study and understanding of your art to a higher level and "Living the Martial Way" will also bring successes in all other areas of your life. Bottom line.....if you are serious about your art, you need this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars It can make you a better person 23 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is not only for the Martial Artist. The principles and topics it covers relate to current problems within society as a whole. Morality and honor are attributes that befit everyone, and this book offers not only instructs one how to go about attaining these virtues, but practical reasons why one should do so. I have recommended this book (at least sections of it) to many of my friends, and all have benefited from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best martial arts book I have ever read. 14 Jun 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I was thouroughly impressed with this book. I frequently go back and re-read certain chapters when I am dealing with issues pertaining to my training, both physically and mentally. This book is not about styles, but about the true spirit of the martial arts. I was most impressed with the author's view on honor. As an American, I agree that most of us look at saving face as honor. And that is why most fights start, to save face. This book totally changed the way I look at my training, the person I am trying to become, and the way I go about striving for that goal. This book is easy to read, simple to understand, and amazingly insightful. It is one of those books that make you say, "Now why didn't I think of that?" Great reading!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Warrior's Code Book 14 Mar 2004
Format:Paperback
All of the most poignant examples, the most inspirational information I have ever read, from dozens of books ranging from Koichi Tohei through to Carlos Castaneda are carefully compiled, and simply written in this fundamental guide for the modern warrior. Whether martial artist or not, the reader will find this book oozing with knowledge useful for anybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABOUT TIME! 23 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is the best modern text I have read on the traditonal warrior training so lacking in todays flash and trash "Americanized Martial Arts". I agree whole hartedly with Maj. Morgan and have made this text required reading for all my students. This book is well over due. It will hopefully wake up the vast majortiy of martial artists who don't have a clue to as the real nature of the warrior arts. Bravo! Maj. Morgan. Your book is a breath of fresh air.

Despite there being some useful information in this book, I found it boring and humourless.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tedious
Patronising, preachy and tedious. The sub title gives it away a manual for the way a modern warrior SHOULD think. I.E. Nothing about learning and deciding for yourself. Read more
