finally made time to read it tonight. It's a different kind of book as people mentioned...at times I got the impression of ocillating between reading a personal diary, post-like recollections from a fight tales & stories forum, MA cult victim recovery and the healing shift to a Zen philosophy...but the main thread throughout the book is a Man's personal Martial Arts journey thus far in his life with introspection and retrospection with a conversational tone.
What makes it interesting and at times seem disconnected is it's timeline of events, stories, reflections, etc are non-sequential. but I suspect if it was put in order, it would sound too much like narration.
My only 'wanting' while reading it, was thinking a bit more humor would have been cool to add.
If you enjoy personal journey books, this will be an interesting read.
cool quote from the book: "Through practice, your mind becomes stronger and your body becomes more intelligent."
