The mispellings and grammatical errors throughout this collection of short essays would indicate that no one took the time to proofread it before publication. Of the subject matter which I have personal knowledge (Karate, Aikido, Judo, Ju Jitsu and Iaido)there are so many inaccuracies that the work became frustrating to read very quickly. I purchased it with the thought that I would gain some interesting knowledge to pass on to students, or at least be entertained, but this book provided neither. I am retired Army Special Forces and a Judo/JuJitsu sensei, with the rank of Nidan (2nd degree black belt)and therefore do know a little bit about the martial arts mentioned above, in which I have trained.
