Great work on grappling with the Gi,
This review is from: Best Judo (Illustrated Japanese Classics) (Paperback)
This is probably the best Judo book on the market. Full of dynamic technique and loaded with good descriptions. This book breaks down all of the major throws of judo while also exploring judo's mat work. Having "Newaza" Sato on board really made this subject matter stand out tremendously. This book also contains a great section on combinations, and physical training. Any person who grapples with a gi should own this book.
My only complaint is that the judoka demonstrating the techniques are both wearing white gis this can sometimes make it hard to distinguish what is going on unless you already have a practiced eye for the material. It is a small complaint to be sure.
