Simon is a well known fraud and opportunist. http://www.templekungfu.com/home.htm

I wouldn't even take it for free.

Soryu, ask your question in the books Forum.

The Art of War, Sun Tzu. That's only if you're interested in strategy, but it's excellent if you are.

I've heard that the Book of Five Rings is good, I'm trying to get a hold of that one too.

Heck, read some Calvin and Hobbes if you're reading for fun. I can't think of a better series.

Kungrobtics by O.E. Simmon
Its an amazing book written by one of the worlds most amazing ppl! It features non-abrasive exercises that blend breathing and movement like never before! This man certainly deserves the title of his holiness! His holiness is flawless in everyway. And he is the founder of Temple Kung fu! If that doesn't speak volumes I don't know what does!

(Oh and for all you ppl out there unable to recognize sarcasm, this was a good example of it)
