    Taken care of.

    Forrest Morgan's book is excellent... In fact, might be time to re-read it.

    I find it's one I revisit regularly. It definitely informed my ideas regarding the martial arts in my early training and it still influences me today.

    I've read most of the ones they listed in the article, and I have to say I've always considered Living the Martial Way to be the best martial arts book I've ever read. Probably because it's more about concepts and idea than anything else, so it makes you think. He doesn't say I've got the answers nearly as often as he says here are some of the questions we should be asking ourselves.

    I agree completely David. Also it makes me proud that such a great book about martial arts was written by an American service member. It's a shame that his knees prevent him from doing martial arts like he used to. I wonder if the old style TKD kicks messed them up?
