A new review has been posted in the AikiWeb Book database:
Book Title: Mastery
Book Author: Leonard, George

Review author: Steffen Glückselig
Rating given: 5 (out of 5)

A very interesting book - not particularly on aikido but on all endeavours. It's about the path that leads towards perfection. It helps to avoid hindrances on that path and gives hints about what to do when those hindrances couldn't be avoided. It tells you how to find a good teacher and how to be a good teacher yourself.
Finally Mr. Leonard talks about finding the spirit of mastery in everyday's activities.

A great source of motivation. -- Love the plateau! ;-)

I really like the idea that training during the plateau stage of the learning curve raised the baseline. Mstery is training until it become automatic (3,000 to 30,000 repetitions). Good read. Highly recommend.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
