I misread the question - I didn't do a book review in the "Books" section of Aikiweb, but I am sure somewhere on either aikiweb or e-budo I ranted and raved.
The reviews of said unmentioned book that do exist hint at what troubles me.
The thing is as a book goes its not completely terrible - fine as a coffee table book to placate Aunty Mae. It is just so far removed from the Aikido I know that I cringe when someone calls it definative or other high praise.
I love to read - almost everything but Aikido books. My approach to it seems to be very organic.
