First off I have to mention Amazon. Ordering the book was very simple and it came in two days well packaged. I had gotten it used and there was barely any ware on it at all. It also came with the book cover.

This book is great. Its written by Gichin Funakoshi and translated by Ohshima.
This book is a great insite on the way Funakoshi would like all karateka to train. It doesnt have much in it for non karate ka in it though. It basically goes over every aspect of karate that someone could possible think of, although most of it is on all the katas which are all diagramed and layed out for the reader to learn.

This book gets a two thumbs up from me! I love it. You can buy it used on amazon for about 20 american dollars or you can buy it new for about 40
