I bought this book because I recently started training in Taekwondo. I love the art. It's a great workout, it helps me feel more confident, and I think it's a great mental practice. This book shows the ugly truth about the history of TKD, created by a dishonorable man who lacks the tenets of taekwondo: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, indomitable spirit. Well, perhaps he persevered, but he did it in some really discourteous and horrible ways. Suffice it to say, I have little respect for the man. I guess this is a good book to read if you are starting out in the art, but know it for what it is--a history of a sinful man creating something far greater than himself.
The reader is really stiff, too.

I liked this book. was a very interesting story. I think it is a important reminder that all people are flawed regardless of what they have accomplished.
It met more than what I expected and I had high hopes for it anyway. I learned so much about the art I trained, I feel more part of the art, understanding the roots and shocked over many incidents described in the book. The narrator was perfect, pronounced words greatly and with ease, and was perfect for the book. Recommended even if you don't train the art as it is great read for any martial artist.
