Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
A friend of mine recently started practicing Aikido, so I wanted a sense of what it was all about. This is a great introductory book and is part of a series on different martial arts, so one could theoretically compare and contrast them. I learned a lot about Aikido, including background information on the founder, and all the information was presented clearly. There are plenty of extra resources at the back, including websites.
