Amazon.com Product Reviews:
“The author writes from the perspective of a “ninja enthusiast” and forces the western ninjutsu dojo culture to engage in some serious self-reflection. This is a quick read, coming in just under 100 pages, but it draws from many lengthy sources which are listed in the back. This list of sources alone is worth the price of the book. I’d recommend this book to anyone interested in studying the history of ninjutsu and/or it’s impact on modern martial and self-defense culture. The author extends the tactics, principles, and philosophy of ninjutsu from its historical context into modern society.” – Andrew Hageman (5 out of 5)
“A little small, but otherwise fairly good. It sticks to it’s name as a “commoner’s guide,” presenting mainly the basics. My only critique would be that it uses too few references, looking only at the usually quoted materials for this work, and does not dig into Japanese military history as well as it should to present a more clear and true picture. Therefore, it still adheres to — and supports — some of the same media hype that has misrepresented ninjutsu for decades by using the same media-given references.” -Tengu151 (4 out of 5)
