An Ugly, Albeit honest, Look @ Taekwondo's history
I bought this book because I recently started training in Taekwondo. I love the art. It's a great workout, it helps me feel more confident, and I think it's a great mental practice. This book shows the ugly truth about the history of TKD, created by a dishonorable man who lacks the tenets of taekwondo: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, indomitable spirit. Well, perhaps he persevered, but he did it in some really discourteous and horrible ways. Suffice it to say, I have little respect for the man. I guess this is a good book to read if you are starting out in the art, but know it for what it is--a history of a sinful man creating something far greater than himself.
The reader is really stiff, too.

I liked this book. was a very interesting story. I think it is a important reminder that all people are flawed regardless of what they have accomplished.
