Format: Paperback
This book gives general info on the types of weapons used by ninja. However for more in depth info I suggest that you look elswhere. This book is good if you are looking for the types of wepons used and not how to master use of them.

I bought this book thinking that because of the cover the Ninja had used weapons imported from China. Wrong! Both weapons on the cover are of Chinese origin but they are not mentioned in the book. There are weapons not found in other books on Japanese arms. That is why I rated this OK. Just do not be misled by the cover.

Kinda cool: This book is an interesting overview of all weapons ninja including sickles, staffs, canes, pole arms, articulated weapons, grapnels, maces, spikes, cleats, claws, swords, shurikens, pyrotechnics, and even firearms. The text is quick and easy to read and the pictures are excellent. The insight into stealth and invisible weapons is great. This isn't a "how to" book, but even if it was you could never "master" any of these items from the few pages that could be devoted to each one. You will certainly learn a bit about each weapon's history and how they are used. It's a really fascinating read.
