4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun read., 28 Feb 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sugong: The Life of a Shaolin Grandmaster (Paperback)
Enjoyed this read as a martial art fan, and hearing all about the culture, the life and travels of this character.
I know now what Yumchaa means…which is a tea shop opposite my office!
I recommend 'Angry White Pyjamas' if you liked this, and 'Devils Not Men', about the Foreign Legion.
A better read than I expected, and fast delivery speed.

I was personally familiar with main people in the book Sek Hok Chun and Sigung and I had trained with Master Christopher Lai (also named in this book). What wonderful read. Thank you Nick.

This review is from: Sugong: The Life of a Shaolin Grandmaster (Paperback)
Really liked this book. Well written and thoughtful. Follows the exciting life of a grandmaster, not the typical life of a monk.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well written and fascinating account of a fasincating life (in fact 2 lives)!, 17 Jun 2012
By 
This review is from: Sugong: The Life of a Shaolin Grandmaster (Paperback)
I loved this book! Hurst writes fluidly and engagingly about both himself and, of course, the life and times of his 'master' - the enigmatic 'Sugong'. It's the seamless interweaving of the two narrative strands that really kept my interest and engaged me. I don't normally go for martial arts bu tthis was something a little different. Highly recommended.
