It took me just a few hours to finish the book, and I found it quite entertaining. It is not a serious book, but rather something like those B class movies about some mischievous people enlisting in the army. I think only aikidoka will be able to understand what the author is trying to tell, and there are a few interesting anecdotes. I didn't take this author's opinions about yoshinkan aikido and its practitioners too seriously because to judge by the kind of marginal life he was himself leading as he describes it in the book, he doesn't really earn neither my respect nor my trust, but the book is intertaining and funny, so why not read it?
