There are also some reviews on the books section.

Basically though (and yes I dislike the book) is you had two Shodans spend about six months in Japan after which they wrote a book. Twigger of Angry White Pyjamas fame has more experience although he probably can't draw that well.

The kindest I heard about the philosophy section is that it is Toheiesque - I've heard worse.

Intermediate to advanced - I don't think so.

Best thing I can say it it is a beautiful coffee table book to keep Grandma happy when she asks what all those bruises on your forearm are all about.
