I do not know exactly how true-to-life the translation is, but the book does have an intro by Kisshomaru Doshu, so I would think it has his approval.
The translation was commisioned by the Doshu. Also, the translator, John Stevens, worked closely on it with his teacher, Rinjiro Shirata, who was a student of the Founder during that period.
