The inspirational teachings in this collection show that the real way of the warrior is based on compassion, wisdom, fearlessness, and love of nature. The teachings are drawn from the talks and writings of Morihei Ueshiba, founder of the popular Japanese martial art of Aikido, a mind-body discipline he called the "Art of Peace," which offers a nonviolent way to victory in the face of conflict. Ueshiba believed Aikido principles could be applied to all the challenges we face in life—in personal relationships, as we interact with society, at work and in business. This edition is a much-expanded version of the original miniature edition which appeared in the Shambhala Pocket Classics series. It features a wealth of new material, including a biography of Ueshiba; an essay by John Stevens presenting Ueshiba's views on "The Art of War versus the Art of Peace"; newly translated didactic "poems of the Way"; and Ueshiba's own calligraphies.

I found 2-3 pages helpful. Well worth it though. An easy read, fast read, small book. Each page only had 1-5 sentences. A book of peace. I wrote 2-3 quotes down from it.
