    Good for finding a balance between life and training

    This is a very easily read book with good food for thought. I was very surprised at what I learned not just on finding a balance between my body slowing down at 40+ and the desire to still train hard but thing things I wish I had learned earlier. The book should have been named 'Martial arts for the Mature Artist' since it's teachings is for those who have wanting to advance past just the physical aspects of training. There is much direction given for both physical and philosophical training.
