"There have been many books on judo--some highly competent, others well-written or well-illustrated, some fit for beginners, others for the advanced student. To have all these in a single volume is unusual…[The Art and Science of Judo] is such a book." --San Francisco Chronicle

"For the teacher or the serious student of judo who desires to know the 'why' of what he does, this book is a must." -- Journal of the Association for Physical and Mental Rehabilitation

"I found this book to be invaluable and would recommend it for anyone who's interested in grappling arts generally (whether judo or not) or even the science of human movement." --Bernie Gourley blog
