First, this book is written like a literal reference manual with acronyms and formal names. As well being organized in a precise and scientific manner, there are several disclaimers and excessive warnings about misuse and accidents involving martial arts training. HONESTLY, we're not five year olds- that does not require expositing! Also at least 1/4th of the whole book is spent just in the intro and exposition. All this combined makes for a dull yet hard to follow read.
Second, the narrator's voice is slow and monotone. Which makes this extremely hard to wade through.
Third, this is actually written with a compatitively specific fight in mind. Confronting a street mugger or schoolyard bully, where the attacker is overly confident in his ability to easily win. As a former army private and survival enthusiast, I will say that many fights will not resemble this because weapons, surprise, and numbers are not accounted for.
I honestly didn't expect much enlightenment, because the concept itself is from a fantasy world. But because it was a couple $ worth, I figured I will satisfy my curiosity. So I did, and the result is even less than expected.
