Another excellent addition to my library

I have to say that this book is nothing new from Dave Lowry, but since he has a winning formula that make his books the most lucid and tangible explanations of difficult concepts in the Budo (martial ways) its a thoroughly enjoyable and informative read. Mr Lowry continues to make less obvious observations of concepts, ideas and techniques from the Budo and uses them as a tool to lead into the explanation of other ideas. On the way one learns such a lot of interesting and useful information that after a chapter I'm often left thinking about what I've just read and its applications to my practise of Budo and there aren't any other authors who make me do that! What I like about Mr Lowry's writings compared to most other authors in this field is that he never resorts to using vague language or mystic notions to hide a lack of understanding. He's always on the button and makes the esoteric accessible to all. Other authors could learn a lot from Mr Lowry.
I thoroughly recommend this book.
