Recommended reading for the martial arts. This is my personal library list. I practice Okinawan Te or "Ryukyu Ti." My system is derived from two others, one being the main influence of Shorin-ryu and the second Goju-ryu. The branch under Shorin-ryu is Isshin-ryu as developed by Shimabuku Tatsuo Sensei.

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.

Howe, Paul R. Msg U.S. Army. "Leadership and Training for the Fight." Authorhouse. Indiana. 2006.

Review: This one I found on Rory Miller's Blog site, "Chiron." Anything he recommends can be counted on to support and inform what he writes in his own books. After reading the first chapter on the OODA I can relate it to some of Rory's information in books and electronic media. As for myself, I find it an outstanding addition to my library. 

This provided me many connections, and I am not hardly finished reading it either, that help my mind relate to things necessary to know how things work. It is outstanding and an awesome supplemental book in support of Rory's efforts as well as other authors of note on this subject. 

Well worth the expense.
