Re: A good illustrated reference?

Everyone recommends Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere, however, I hate that book!
I'm not a fan of any illustrated aikido guides, I just think that the best place to learn aikido is on the mat. I little like looking at a painting and hoping that you can learn how to paint from it.

I am however curious to know why you hate this one so much Mike? I liked the text and the illustrations are rather good. What was so bad about it?
