This book makes me appreciate kendo more as a practitioner, and I would recommend it to everyone who is interested to deepen their understanding of the art and educate themselves in the underpinnings of what made kendo the way it is.
The practice of Japanese martial arts is rife with exaggerations and misunderstandings even among long-time practitioners. These myths are held as truth, to the detriment of a deep understanding. If you are looking for a clear-headed look at the historical milieu from which modern kendo has spring, this is the book for you.
