Aikido Shugyo, the first of Shioda-sama's books translated by Payet and Johnston, is one of the best martial arts autobiographies available. This companion volume is equally well produced, with the translation capturing a clear, individual voice, which I assume is very much as it must have been to speak with the author. I thought the content was a little repetitive from the perspective of aikido anecdotes/advice, but the stories about the war and the founding of the Yoshinkan hombu dojo are quite interesting. If you have a thing for martial arts history, this is almost as much of a must-read as Shugyo.
Edited: please not the price I paid was 2,500 yen, not 2,500 dollars.
