Very well written, funny and informative, from both an MA and cultural viewpoint.

An absolute must read...

"Living The Martial Arts Way"
by Forrest E. Morrgan

Many times I have referd back to his book for quotes that I wanted to give to other MA's. I picked it up and didn't put it down until it was finished.

I too, have read Forrest Morgan's book twice already. Applicable to any martial art, it defines what a real warrior should be even in this day and age. It's very inspirational, an excellent reference for any martial artist. Wouldn't be without it!

Evening creative:

"Way of the Peaceful Warrior" by Dan Millman.

It is a story with wisdom, definate humor and mature understanding of the goal of "authentic" -do arts.

Its my opinion, I could easily be mistaken,

Real tough question!!

Although it took me some time to come to it, I've read it several times over the years and each time I find something new.
