4.0 out of 5 stars get rid of the ego, 11 Mar. 2005
This book offers a practical series of exercises taught, as so many great teachers do, through little stories and retelling of personal experiences. Not a martial artist myself but I do draw inspiration from this book which I am sure will be read time and time again. When you get tired of all the macho muscle stuff this one will strengthen the mind and show you the old way. Read it and you might see what I am talking about.

4.0 out of 5 stars All Volunteer Mariner out there!, 24 Jan. 2003
As a new member of the local MVS Unit I found this book a gem in helping me pass part of the foundation course, sadly now a little out of date, mines being the 1973 edition, it still remains as informative as ever. The pleasure it has given me in progressively being able to identifying the wide variety of seas borne vessels has realy made my free time activities more fulfilling. A pocket sized delight - a must for all those new to maritime activities.
