From the Foreward by Dennis Palumbo
Though I have some minor criticisms . . . this is truly an invaluable book. The richness of the knowledge that Morgan conveys as well as the systematic, practical as well as philosophical, expression of how to live the warrior way is something that I deeply respect, honor, and have striven for in my own life and martial practice over the last three decades. Morgan has a deep knowledge of the “Asian” martial arts (one of my criticisms—but it is still one of the best modern books on martial arts I have ever read)—which, as expressed in the book really are the Japanese, and to lesser extent Korean and Chinese.
