Book Title: The Spiritual Foundations of Aikido
Book Author: Gleason, William
Review author: Jeff Tibbetts
Rating given: 5 (out of 5)
For the Aikido history buff, or anyone interested in some of the more esoteric Eastern religious practices, this book is amazing. I suspect that for many poeple this would be the only way to find out about where the religion of O'Sensei had it's roots. On many levels, this book is a valuable resource for the analysis of some of the philosophy that Aikido encapsulates. It's well written, very well illustrated and covers a broad range of the religious practices that influenced the founder. Excellent on many levels.
