Best Book for Your Money, Anonymous (Barnes and Noble reviewer) May, 2003
This is the most comprehensive book i've seen so far on a sword form. The author gives a great history on the sword, tells you how to choose one , and then how to wield it.This book contains enough information to make a novice a master and to teach a master a few new tricks. I think this is my best investment so far out of my complete library.
