    It’s a good little book. I read it a couple times, but many years ago.

    I'm rereading Secret Fighting Arts of The World, by John F. Gilbey.

    It's awesome. Where else could you get the Ganges Groin Gouge, Parisian Halitotic Attack, The Macedonian Buttock and the Dinky Little Poke all in one place?

    I forgot how much I enjoyed the book. If you read it tell me what you think.
