    Facing Violence by Rory Miller, and so far it is excellent, I would highly recommend it to any martial artist.

    'Simply Wing Chun' by Shaun Rawcliffe.

    I have a number of Wing Chun books and enjoy them all but this one seems to have a more in depth analysis bordering on the scientific so I am finding it very interesting. I also have the other two books in the series waiting to be read after this.
