More About the Author

Writing has become my quest for understanding. Why does the world work as it does? How does the past help us understand the present? How is genius put together? What kind of knowledge actually enables us to live better lives? Look at my diverse array of work (Batman, Aristotle, Football, Sumo) and you will find a constant focus on tackling these questions. And few people can do it better.

I did quite like this book. I've been a sumo fan for years, yet this book gave me some some interesting insights into the sport I was unaware of. I'd like to give it 4 stars, except for a couple glaring issues. First, the title is misleading. It makes it sound like the author did in-depth interviews with sumo wrestlers, which is what I was expecting. Although he certainly seems to have contacts in the sumo world, the book is through HIS eyes, not wrestlers' eyes. Second, it could have been more closely edited or proofread. I found the same information sometimes repeated just a page or two apart. Several of the pictures were also not visible on my Kindle, but I won't fault the author for this.
Still, fairly decent writing style and lots of interesting information. Definitely an engaging and quick read. Almost a 4-star book.

I am a Sumo fan and was always disappointed by the lack of good Books in English about the Sport, until I read this one. It is comprehensive and covers many periods and its greatest fighters. It will give you the insides you always wanted to know about, cant miss this book if you like Sumo!

This is a great book which explains every aspect of Sumo in detail from wrestling to ceremony to Japanese culture. Very thorough coverage of an interesting but little understood sport in the Western world. Complete with pictures and bios of major Sumo players.
