I wanted to create a library reference blog where I can provide a listing of the books I have in my library, present and past (past in that some have been lost in transit over the years). I will provide a graphic, if available, a short description, if available, and the bibliography. When possible a link to Amazon will be provided.

Budo Mind and Body
Suino, Nicklaus. "Budo Mind and Body: Training Secrets of the Japanese Martial Arts." Weatherhill. Boston. 2006.
Review: Mr. Suino was the first author that provided me insight into a "koryu" based or traditional martial art of Japan. It opened a lot of doors in my mind to understanding the culture that is Japanese and Japanese martial arts.
It was a percursor to my desire to find more about the cultures that drove many to the practice and teachings that are the arts and crafts of Asia. Well worth the addition to your library.
