I have studied and trained in Aikido for a few years now, no matter how much I also teach I will always remain a student, and this book provides some refreshing and reassuring reminders and even insight into the principles and ethics of Traditional Aikido.
There may be a few statements that may seem a bit contrary to the book and its ethos but you should bear in mind it is the writings of a person trained in and of another era. Well recommended.

At last this book is translated. Gozo Shioda Shihan was a remarkable man. And one of the pupils of O-Sensei. His down to earth view on matters, the impact of aikido on his life and his view on budo make an interesting and inspirational read for every modern aikidoka, even if not Yoshinkan -style. ;-)

Very interesting, rather inspiring, somewhat different perspective than usual in this sort of book. I believe the book is informative regardless of style.
