I stumbled onto this book while doing some research, and picked it up primarily out of curiosity. Once I began reading it, though, I was so taken in by Cardillo's style, and curiosity, that I couldn't help but continue.

In each short chapter, Cardillo takes on one core principle of the martial arts, explaining how it relates to the art, how he experienced it in his own training, and how it can relate to the average person's daily experiences and aid them in their own personal/professional develop

I read this book back in 1984 when I was a young Stock Broker and Entrepreneur! A good book to read for anyone going into business or just wants to learn how to negotiate a better deal or price for anything!

Mandatory reading for professor Cardillo's creative writing course, this was nonetheless a decent read.
Some useful and interesting ideas here, worth a read.
Read this book in college while studying martial arts. Very helpful.
