Hello everyone, first off I tried searching for a thread on this book but I was unsuccessful. If there is already one just point me in its direction and that will be that.

http://www.amazon.com/Knightly-Martial-Arts-J...amp;sr=8-1

I was wondering what you guys think about this book. I was considering making it my next leisure book purchase. How does it stand up to other similar books, of which there are many? How in depth is the information presented and how accurate do you feel his interpretations are? I'm far from new to the subject but at over 400 pages I would hope its deep enough to teach me a few things, or present me with some interesting new interpretations.

I haven't read it, but there's some feedback in that thread.

Thanks for the help guys, looks like its almost universally regarded as a stinker. Dodged that bullet, I'm glad I did not impulse buy and instead decided to ask around for reviews.
