Picture a determined German who goes to Japan to learn archery from a zen master. So much more than a sports book. It reveals a zen way of thinking that is applicable to all the arts, from writing a story to shooting an arrow. Masterful and humbling. Just as readable today as back in the day when it was first published (1936).
