Hmmm...how did I know that if the word 'book' was mentioned, that there would be a 'bum's rush' for the Asian forum 'Out' door?

Time's up: answer is The Art of War, by Sun Tsu.

One online version: http://www.chinapage.com/sunzi-e.html

(PS. I think we should let folks google. Just a suggestion. I mean, is the object of taking a test to get an 'A'...or to do research and learn a little bit? )

Sorry Harlan,

I know my posts have been far and few between as of late. Too much going on lately with work, family, training, etc...The usual daily grind.
I'm sure that I would have gotten to your post eventually...
Yeh! YEH! THAT'S the ticket!! And, ah...my wife is Morgan Fairchild, see...(Sorry, very late, and way too much Saturday Night Live viewing in my younger years.
So, the ball is still in your court. Fire away with another challenge quote.
Also, since we have had such a HUGE responce to the literary challenge (dripping with sarcasm), I thought that we might change the rules yet again, to see if we can get participation above a whole wopping four members.
What do you say to letting people go ahead and GOOGLE (OUCH! I think I hurt myself saying that!)?
You have the floor sir.

Thanks.

Okay...one more try...whoever solves it must provide the next quote.

Modern, popular martial arts writing (the author still very much active):

Yoyu: Critical Margin

It is pertinent to ask, what is it that distinguishes the bugei from a combative form such as boxing or European fencing? The bugei's claims of dimensions philosophical and spiritual aside, what is it the nonpracticing observer might watch for that differentiates the martial Ways from the fighting to be found in every civilization throughout time? One characteristic element might be yoyu , the "critical interval."
