Summary: Great source of information!
Comment: Michael Finn is an Internationally recognized authority on Martial Arts. He has been training for some twenty-eight years and has 34 black belts in nine Martial Arts. Each of these exams were taken under the authoritative bodies in Japan. In 1967 he won the British National Police Judo Championships and in 1970 represented Great Britain in the World Kendo Championships. As an authority in his field he has appeared on various occasions on British television and even Japanese television.

Summary: Ok, addition for your library
Comment: This book is an interesting read but not written by a "writer."
It has more of a feel of a diary that someone wrote in order to chronicle his lessons while in Japan (there is basically no information about "western lessons" and the use of bokken).
The photography is amateurish, there are misspelled words, and the narration doesn't match the illustrations, but the book is good in the way that it helps you to understand the committment that is involved in starting a new martial art.
I enjoyed reading it but was left with a feeling at the end of "That's it?"
Ok on the bookshelf with the rest.

Summary: Good stuff/ lacks in some areas.
Comment: I found this book to have some comprehensive information on the philosophy of iaido. However it had very little information on the sword, katas and the motions of iaido. I believe that both are equally important in the study of Iaido.
