    Very Good Read.

    Excellent book by Morihei Ueshiba. Good writing and very understandable. A nice little Buddhist bible to carry, read, and reference always. Once one reads this, then one should read Invincible Warrior by the aforesaid author.

    read it

    This is a great book, not just for Aikido practitioners but also for those, like myself, who are interested in the rich world of martial arts. It seems named to off-set Sun Tsu's book 'the Art of War', but that could just be a coincidense. These are the thoughts of the founder of Aikido, a very fascinating read of a legend's philosophy. Thins but deep book, built around pacifist ideoloy.

    Love it!

    I had no idea what Aikido was when I picked up this book, I was and am still no kind of scholar, and I had no intention of getting this book when I went to the store, but this book has opened my mind to so many things and has become one of my most cherished items. Read it and become peace.

    Excellent

    Don't expect a big book with a lot of pages, be aware that this is a small book (Inches: 0.41 x 4.50 x 3.06). However, it contains the inspirational teachings of Morihei Ueshiba, showing how the way of the warrior must be: a way of compassion, fearlessness, love and wisdom. This book is recommended for everyone, but it's essential for those who want to practice Aikido, not as an Art of War, but as an Art of Peace. Also read 'Open Your Mind, Open Your Life' by Taro Gold. Excellent.
