When Buddhists Attack (Jeffrey K. Mann)
The Book in a Nutshell

The author clearly knows a lot about martial arts (he holds a 4th Dan in Karate and has trained in Japan) and his knowledge of the subject shows throughout this book.
This is a clever book taking a very interesting approach looking at topics such as Buddhism, Zen and the Samurai.
For the hardcore martial artists amongst you, this book offers a route for you to reconnect with the authentic spiritual discipline of martial arts. For the not so hardcore, this is an interesting take on martial arts that you will enjoy reading.
