    I have read many of Don Roley's translations regarding ninjutsu and you can get a real sense that his goal with his translations are not only to stay as true as possible to the original text but also convey the spirit of the text. For example where the author might have used humor that would be lost on modern readers Don Roley does an excellent job of updating the response to keep the authors voice intact. Another thing I really like about Don's translations is that he is upfront in the beginning regarding any changes he made and the justifications for those changes. Although that may aggravate some people that the text had been altered, I believe that Don's upfront admission adds to his credibility. This Book: The Honor of Koga-Ryu Ninjutsu, is a work of fiction. As the summary points out this book was written in the 1900's and does a good job portraying how ninja were viewed by society at that time. This book should not be taken as some sort of instructional manual on ninjutsu. What... More > I really like about these types of works is that it really helps to shred away that Hollywood vision of the mythical ninja and brings the reader closer to understanding the reality. I would recommend this book if you are interested in Japanese history, Ninjutsu, or martial arts; but definitely not to a casual reader who is looking for a novel to get into.< Less
