This is an important book, not only because it is unique, but because it's so
well done. The subtitle "Beating and Nothingness" suggests, correctly, that there is wit as well
within these pages.
The word "philosophy" scares many readers off, but it shouldn't in this book. It shows how
integral philosophy is to everything we do...including martial arts. There is not merely a book
for aspiring black belts. It's for any thoughtful person who would like to know more about him or herself.

This book was well coordinated. Entertaining writing style (every author has their own) and attractive ideas. The writing is accessible for a general audience and students like myself who want to learn more about the philosophy that runs with the martial arts. The short biographies are hilarious. The essays read like a mix of academic papers and personal statements, with many anecdotes to illustrate points.

I am a fan of these books. I like a lot of the essays and how they show the influence of both popular culture, as well as the many philosophical studies that can be seen in it. You learn to think about certain things, in a different way.
