Curious what everyone is reading. I finished Ronda Rousey's book 'My Fight/Your Fight'.
Currently reading 'No Easy Day'. It's about the Navy Seals pursuit and killing of Osama Bin Laden. Good read!

My 9yr old daughter is making me read the "Land of stories" books, but I am waiting on a stir-fry cookbook and Choi Hong Hi's 1965 TKD book to arrive in the mail.

Don Quixote - Miguel de Cervantes
Systema Manual - Konstantin Komarov
Let Every Breath - Vladimir Vasiliev and Scott Meredith
Strikes: Soul Meets Body - Vladimir Vasiliev and Scott Meredith

I hurt my heel Friday night and have been keeping it elevated while stuck in a chair. I finished SM and am halfway through LEB. I'll go back to Quixote for a while before tackling Strikes.

I practice yiquan and taiji but am curious about Systema. I like the training more than the applications, though I still don't know what they are doing.

Finished "Fight Like a Physicist: The Incredible Science Behind Martial Arts" a few days ago.
Good, but short. And against Chinese medicine...

PS: I always recommend reading at least one from Rory Miller.

I was reading Centennial by Michener (for the fourth or fifth time) when the first 200 pages of a friend's novel arrived in the mail. Pretty good so far, about a hundred pages in. I think he's got a decent shot at getting it published. (so far, anyway) It's crime fiction and has some interesting characters. I'm taking notes that I will e-mail to him. One being that he is trying to show off his vocabulary, which can turn a reader off faster than cold soup. But other than that, pretty good.

After his death, he travels back in time and reborn, In his new life, he has 17 wifes, becomes the richest person on earth (even Bill Gates bought Window 98 from him). He even owns his star in the galaxy.

It costs about $15 to buy the title to a star online. I'm more envious of someone who owns their own island in the Bahamas than a star, frankly.
Of course, the people who live on the planets circling that star will hopefully just laugh if you try to exercise that title, rather than bite our faces off or disintegrate out planet or something.

Minimum effort to overcome big impact . Every strikes and kicks inside there is simple just ppl make it to be complicated . This book is more completed compare to TAO of jeet kune do - that really needs a lot understanding :)

The basic foundation is important .
Simple direct

I am about to finish Fierce Patriot by Robert L. O'Connell. It's a biography of General William T. Sherman, the scourge of the South and a leading figure in building the railroad system post-American Civil War. Recommended.

Next up, Children of Earth and Sky by Guy Gavriel Kay.

I've been reading FEMA manuals for the last two days. (for work) God, I want to tear my eyes out.
