This book serves to highlight points already made by many a Sensei in any dojo. However, not many Senseis could do it the way Stan could -- to narrate in a storybook format. It even comes complete with sections whereby the reader is transported into the realm of the nage (words in italics). Many a time in his book, Stan brings forth his points in the form of questions. Answer those questions mindfully and honestly and the reader shall see Aikido in a better light. One final word -- it lacks pictures or illustrations. Not that it handicaps this book in a big way, but perhaps it won't make the reading monotonous.
