    PDF/EPUB John Man ´ ´ Ninja eBook Ô ninja book, Ninja ePUBNinja reads less like a 1000 Year history and like an extended Esuire article Not necessarily a bad thing it's a moderately interesting breezy book But if you're looking for a comprehensive history of the concept of ninjas dating from feudal Japan to the present look elsewhere As a good case in point one sentence begins as follows To cram four centuries into a sentence So what is covered by the rest of the 300 pages? Some anecdotes about famous Japanese warriors rulers aspiring unifiers samurai shogun and assassins; some ninja wisdom akin to the seven secrets of highly successful ninjas; and some extended discussions in the last few chapters about how James Bond brought ninja into the pop culture in the 1960's and how one Japanese ninja continued to fight WWII in the jungles of Manila until 1972

    PDF/EPUB John Man ´ ´ Ninja eBook Ô ninja book, Ninja ePUBAn easy to read brief history of Ninjas The author switches between history text and researcher's travelogue occasionally which makes certain parts of the ninja story real ie the old guy in Japan with an attic full of old armor and relieves the Japanese history newbie from to many names from Japanese history Some of the interesting parts are the modern legacy of the ninja there is even a chapter on James Bond

    PDF/EPUB John Man ´ ´ Ninja eBook Ô ninja book, Ninja ePUBThe multitude of names and places was a tad confusing It took me a year to read Ninja so I will admit that my opinion may have differed if I had read it all in one sitting Having said that the book really shines when it details the beginnings of ninja culture The How to be a ninja sections were great as well as the chapters about the civil war
