Rating given: 3 (out of 5)
As stated in the other review, this book isn't really about Aikido. It's title might lead you to believe that it's applicable to all aspects of your life, but in reality it's kind of like a management resource. Some of the applications are brilliant, some are obvious, and there's a whole range in between. It's nice to think of Aikido in this manner, but I wish that it would have a more appropriate title. It's also quite dated, and the frequent use of the term Attacktics was kind of grating. It sounds like I am bashing on this book, but it's quite good at what it is. If you are not interested in how to apply some of your Aikido lessons to the business field, than look elsewhere. If you are, however, or you know nothing about Aikido than this could be a great book for you.
