Has anyone on the boards read this series? I've found it fascinating, it offers some unusual insight into martial arts, I particularly mean the Bene Geserit and the fictional martial art style of Prana Bindu. There's a fantastic scene written in the first book where the protaganist engages in his first lethal knife fight, and it has some interesting pointers, stylized naturally. While of course the book was fictional, a lot of its insights into life it espouses are valid. What are your thoughts on the series? It's my favorite book series to be honest. It wonderfully delves into philosophy and religion, politics among many others. I don't think I've re-read it once and it not have come off somewhat differently each time. I do love a good series which makes onethink.
