Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Shotokan Karate for Self-Defense: Combat Karate for the street).
This book is a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. It does not teach you anything you don't already know. For exercises you are better off with what you did in High School Physical Education, or Boot Camp's Physical Training routines. For martial arts training or learning Krav Maga, there are much better instructional books that explain the techniques. Preferably the DVDs demonstrate and explain moves and techniques.
I do have one glaring issue with the book that other reviews haven't mentioned; it's riddled with mistakes that any competent editor would have caught. For example, there are pictures to accompany descriptions of most exercises. This is very helpful, except that some of the pictures are for completely different exercises than the captions say. Additionally, several of the exercise routines do not give the number of repetitions, or a duration. Occasionally the routines even call for an exercise without explaining what it is. Other times, no page reference is provided so the reader can go look up how to do the exercise. These mistakes are very frustrating at times, and I just wish the editors would have made more of an effort.
That said, most of the time I was able to figure out what I was supposed to do with common sense; it just takes a little longer than it should. Despite it's problems, I do recommend the book as a great guide to fitness for those of us without weight rooms, and a good introduction to elementary fighting techniques.
