    keep looking

    The discussion on forms (poomsae) was disappointing and outright disgraceful. The illustrations are in some cases completely wrong, while in other cases, the descriptions are completely wrong. For an advanced book, the author should have stayed away from illustrations, too. For some reason, the discussion of the forms stopped at Sipjin (5th dan form), leaving Jitae and above only mentioned but not described.

    The chapters on drills were interesting, but many of the drills - in my opinion - were more for beginners.

    I would have expected better from a book purporting to be "advanced".

    I would go into more detail about why I recommend keep looking, but for some reason, BN does not allow lengthy complaints.
