Cons:

Just finished reading it this evening. Noticed no one has reviewed it yet. Bit surprised. This is a really useful, thought-inspiring book. Obviously people who practice aikido and other Japanese arts can appreciate the ideas inside, but it also functions as a guide to self-realization for people from all walks of life.
The author starts with a definition of ki as a "universal energy" and Part I focuses on developing ki. There are quite a few pages about breathing and meditation. Part II looks at finding ki in various Japanese arts including aikido, calligraphy and the tea ceremony.
The author, like Tohei sensei, really wants the reader to understand that ki definitely has a place in the modern (or Western) world. And in this book, he does a great job in explaining the value and benefit of ki as a "dynamic expression of the pulse of Universal Life".
