Hi folks,

As I announced on the front page of this website, Ellis Amdur has just announced his new book called, Dueling with O-sensei: Grappling with the Myth of the Warrior Sage. He writes about his book, "In essence, I've always been fascinated by aikido, but have also believed that deification of anyone blinds us on how to possibily achieve anything of value from a discipline. Therefore, my intention is, with all respect, to face Ueshiba Morihei eye-to-eye, and to consider aikido as having emerged from his own struggle with flaws, moral failure and weakness as well as genius. My access route has been, at times, to consider myself in the same light."

The book is only available on his website.

Anyone who has the book want to write a book review of it?
