In Invisible Armor, martial arts historian and author Serge Mol, introduces the reader to the esoteric dimension to the art of war, and by doing so paints a completely different picture of the Japanese warrior than the traditional Zen inspired image most readers have grown accustomed to.
The books arrived in great condition! The transaction was smooth and hassle-free. Highly recommended!
Liked this book a lot. It is really dense with information and knowledge about the very esoteric aspects of the warrior culture of Japan. Not exactly a subject for wide discussions. It is beneficial to read a book like this as it challenges your understanding and changes your outlook on how the Japanese warrior and his society is perceived as claimed, through the introduction to what was a reality of combat both personal and en mass, and also the larger scale of using feng shui and religion to survive the rigors of battle.
In truth, a picture painted is quite different, although one may argue that it is even more different from the perspective of the ancient warriors themselves. However, I have to insist that this is pretty close, and properly done, expect for few spelling mistakes here and there. I really think that the book of this caliber should be proofread a little bit better. But rather than that its a dense and very informative book on a rather esoteric and little accessible subject, which is appreciated
