Publisher's Summary

"A man who has attained mastery of an art reveals it in his every action." - Samurai maxim
Under the guidance of such celebrated masters as Ed Parker and the immortal Bruce Lee, Joe Hyams vividly recounts his more than twenty-five years of experience in the martial arts. In his illuminating story, Hyams reveals to listeners how the daily application of Zen principles not only developed his physical expertise but gave him the mental discipline to control his personal problems - self-image, work pressure, competition. Indeed, mastering the spiritual goals in martial arts can dramatically alter the quality of your life - enriching your relationships with people, as well as helping you make use of all your abilities.

THIS BOOK IS ESSENTIAL!

Any additional comments?

Okay, I figured this would be good, but I was not prepared for HOW good. If you really want a treat I recommend reading this book and then reading The Unfettered Mind by Takuan Soho, here's why. The Unfettered mind is one of the most important books ever written regarding zen and martial arts, but it can be difficult to absorb. This book really simplifies the ideas in The Unfettered mind and make it easier to take in. The Unfettered Mind made a lot more sense to me after reading this.

This book is simple, profound, and elegant. I cannot recommend it enough.
