This book is not written by a pre-eminent expert on zen. Or on Martial Arts. Or on Japan. No.This book was written by a man with a deep understanding of all three, which is just what this subject calls for, an expert in just one of these three would not be able to give an adequate answer. Someone learned in all three is required-even if he falls short of being an expert any one area. I learned a lot in surprisingly few pages, and have also been shown some of my ignorance. If the title intrigues you you should read the book. If it doesn't, you shouldn't. It is thoughtfully explored and explained.
