Book Title: Dueling with O-Sensei: Grappling with the Myth of the Warrior Sage
Book Author: Amdur, Ellis

Review author: Tara Cazaubon
Rating given: 4 (out of 5)

I really enjoyed this book. The stories were vivid and personal, giving background information on Aikido personalities that I hadn't found elsewhere. Mr. Amdur is brutally honest about himself and his experiences, not sugarcoating or toning down the stories to make himself look better.

As a female reader, it also gave me a lot of insight into what manhood means and how that fits into martial arts training.

I highly recommend it for a completely different view than I've found in other Aikido books, and a very good read.
