A new review has been posted in the AikiWeb Book database:
============================
Book Title: The Way of Aikido: Life Lessons from an American Sensei
Book Author: Leonard, George

Review author: Jeff Tibbetts
Rating given: 4 (out of 5)

Review:
This is an autobiographical look at the changes that some Aikidoka experience on the path. It covers a very interesting period in Aikido history in through the earlier stages of it's introduction to America, with some very humorous and eye-opening glimpses into what the art has survived to get where it's at. It also delves into what some people don't like to talk about: the spiritual awakenings that Aikido can bring. There are times when there is much talk of energy work and such, but in this book it never once comes accrost as hippie mumbo-jumbo. It's always treated with a great deal of respect, and discussed in a very atypically pragmatic fashion. Good book from start to finish, and there's certainly some lessons to be learned here.
