While not having as many technical illustrations as I liked (Volkmann's book is the best I've found for that to date), it was a good read from start to finish. Its clear that he's ruffled some feathers in the fencing community by what he's said, though I think that a lot of what he has to say has merit, and that his writings have brought no small number of fencers back to some traditional ideas that were on the decline in our modern era. I look forward to reading more books my Mr. Evangelista.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

THE ART AND SCIENCE OF FENCING is by far the very best fencing book ever produced. It is easy to understand and entertaining at the same time. It brings a depth to fencing that most other fencing books totally lack. That it seems to be the best-selling fencing book on the market today is telling. It is inspiring. This book should be in every fencing library.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
