While some of the spelling and grammer mistakes are glaring, reflecting it's plublishing date of 1912, a lack of editor, or both, this is quite possibly the single most important wrestling book ever writen. It's compatable with sport, self defense or Professional wrestling, even taking wrestling to a lifestyle equal to any modern martial art. From simplistic but effective locking and take down techniques to subtle yet ingenious transitions and holds this book is a must for the begining or experienced wrestler, covering both the stand up and ground elements, concepts of stamina and endurance, tempo and strategy equal to any classical fencing teacher, a focus on internal health ewual to any tai Chi or Qi Gung master, cross training with boxing to form a true mixed martial art, even practical self defense techniques, though all using somewhat date terminology " be ON TIME" " use your MENTAL STUFF", etc. The picture qulaity is very good considering it's time though you don't get multiple angles. It also features illustrations on workouts to help build a strong body and the man's philosophy not only of wrestling but of living a healthy, happy life as a wrestler. Truely a treasure at the level of Rick Flair and Larry the legend.

This book looks like it was made by scanning the original lessons, and letting some sort of OCR sort out the text. There are plenty of unneccesary typing errors in the text, and the images look really blurry. Also, some places in the book, images are missing. In the end, I give the book three stars, as it is currently the best available option for obtaining these lessons(there are worse, low-res scans of the original course available for free online), but minus two stars for image quality and errors.
