Excellent, eloquent, thought-provoking book

I was extraordinarily impressed by this book. Author Stevens has provided a succinct overview of the philosphy of Aikido. What is at least as impressive is how he ties in religious and philosophical threads from many other traditions, eastern and western, ancient and modern, in a way which sets Aikido's spirituality in a wonderfully broad and rich context. He does this in a way which is not at all forced or contrived, but truly sensible and resonant. A work of this philosophical and religious depth is a real find at any price. Personally, I found this book very moving and thought-provoking, and a great help in my spiritual search. I strongly recommend it for all Aikido practitioners, as well as all those generally interested in eastern philosophy and comparative religions.
