Slapping Dragons: Questioning the Unquestionable in Martial Arts

I frequent Iain Abernethy's site and this was a good recommendation so I would like to pass it onto you guys too

"The book ‘Slapping Dragons’ is about taking a close look at some of the strange beliefs and practices often found within the martial arts. Some of the claims are silly, such as Qi power and the touch of death, and some of the claims are dangerous, as in when self-defense/self-protection is advertized, and the actual lessons contain incorrect information and ideas which could put you in jail or cause you to be killed. Through personal anecdotes, hard facts and a generous dose of humor, the book shines a light on many subjects surrounding the martial arts, and applies critical thinking skills to examine if they stand up to reason."

The book is available at the following:

Kindle users (or if you have a Kindle app for your phone or PC (the app is a free download): http://www.amazon.com/Slapping-Dragons-e...lapping+Dragons
