The beautiful pain, 26 Jan. 2007
If you're a martial arts purist, you'll love this book. And if you wouldn't recognise one end of a dojo from another, well, you'll love this book too.
Waking Dragons is a hugely accessible read. With a sensitive and enthusiastic writing style, Goran uses his personal odyssey on the karate path to provide an honest, unique and invaluable insight to the warrior's psyche.
And whilst he relays the fight sequences in almost terrifyingly brutal detail, what really hits you is that even for a fully qualified senior black belt with years of experience, the real battles are won and lost in the mind.
