Aside from The Ninja And Their Secret Fighting Art, this is the best book Hayes has ever written concerning this art. Most of his other works contain only bits and pieces of useful information. Most of his books as well as videos I have come to understand as being full of misinformation. I actually own all of his older works as well as two of his newer dvds and two old ones. When compared to Hatsumi, Manaka, and Tanemura's works it proves true that Mr.Hayes doesn't teach traditional methods of this art. I'm not refering to his To Shin Do stuff either. I'm refering to the stuff he sells as Ninjutsu/Togakure Ryu/Nine Shadows/Bujinkan etc materials. So just a little buyer beware when approaching his materials. I'm not saying he "sucks" but I'm saying that he seems to be the only one teaching the way he does. His shuriken techniques are completely different from what Hatsumi,Tanemura, and Manaka teach. Since they are in my opinion and most likely everyone else's opinions the best of the best when it comes to Ninpo. I would trust that they are teaching the correct methods and Hayes is sadly confused or just plain misleading people for the sheer purpose of making a dollar.
This book is pretty interesting. I do not train in Ninjutsu, however I do enjoy learning about the art through various media outlets. This is one of the better books I have read. I have yet to, nor do I feel I ever will, incorporate any of this into my training, but it is fun to learn for historical purposes.

The best part of this book in my opinion is the historical outline. It's nice to read history from the point of view of the ninja, rather than the samurai all the time. It's a bit like learning american history from the point of view of the native americans, rather than the government.
