This review is from: In Search of the Ninja: The Historical Truth of Ninjutsu (Hardcover)
I have just finished reading this book in one sitting! it has to be one if not the most important books on the subject of the ninja ever writen the author has not only found out shinobi methods but has gone as far as getting things like sleeping powder scientificly analized proving what may at first looks like medeveal madness to actually being realistic methods actualy used by real people during the fudel era in japan. mr cummins goes on to actually prove the chinese origins of the shinobi skills and truely as never before brings the skills of the ninja to life using only historicly proven material and some never seen before in the west ninjutsu scrolls . if you have even a passing interest in japanise history or unconventional warfare and especialy the skills of the spy get this book!
