    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBI hovered between a 2 and a 3 on this I found him glib and sometimes condescending towards his subject He also meandered into personal anecdotes related to his travels and research As in the book I read on the Samurai recently I felt the subject got short shrift

    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBNinja reads less like a 1000 Year history and like an extended Esuire article Not necessarily a bad thing it's a moderately interesting breezy book But if you're looking for a comprehensive history of the concept of ninjas dating from feudal Japan to the present look elsewhere As a good case in point one sentence begins as follows To cram four centuries into a sentence So what is covered by the rest of the 300 pages? Some anecdotes about famous Japanese warriors rulers aspiring unifiers samurai shogun and assassins; some ninja wisdom akin to the seven secrets of highly successful ninjas; and some extended discussions in the last few chapters about how James Bond brought ninja into the pop culture in the 1960's and how one Japanese ninja continued to fight WWII in the jungles of M

    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBOriginally posted on my blog Misprinted PagesNote I want your uestions about real life ninjas Please include them in the comments here or on my blog and I'll try to pass them on to author John Man to answerOur idea of the uintessential ninja is a little short of historical reality In fact what does the average person really know besides that they dress in all black and are masters of stealth and assassination techniues? They didn’t use magic they couldn’t walk on water and their primary goal was not to kill or be killedJohn Man’s new book Ninja 1000 Years of the Shadow Warrior traces this order through history — from the first proto ninjas to the true ninjas’ rising prevalence in Iga and Kōga in Japan and their fall and final years Much of the foundation of ninjutsu the way of life came from Chinese origins and t

    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBReviewed for The BibliophibianNinja is another travelogue ish easy to read history of a broad and fascinating topic in this case the history and afterlife of ninjas in Japanese culture It felt scatterbrained than Man’s other books and was of a chore to read; I wasn’t really impressed and although there were some very informative chapters about actual ninjas and what they did there’s a lot of fluff about traditions and stories about ninjas that didn’t really add up to muchOf Ma

    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBJohn Man’s Ninja 1000 Years of the Shadow Warrior will likely disappoint those looking for a proper history of one of Japan’s most famous cultural exports as there’s simply too much conjecture with the subject matter to consider it reliable Despite the premise of demystifying what the term ‘ninja’ has become in western culture Man freely uses it as an adjective applying it to subjects that might not ualify James Bond gets an inordinate amount of attention here While there’ plenty of interesting bits here for those interested in Japanese history even this too often comes across like a superficial documentary on cable television; one can almost hear the voice over narration and sound effects added to still pictures already Those expecting an exhaustive and meticulously researched account on the subject may want to look elsewhereNinja 1000 Years of the Shadow Warrior Review on Popzara

    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBExcellent history of the Ninja but I think the author may have bitten off than he could chew with this book Trying to tie the growth of the ninja clans into the other threads of feudal Japanese history with little to no backg

    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBThis book is a good beginner book on ninjas It hits certain key points throughout the history of ninjas and helps you better understand myth vs fact I guess what sticks out to me though is when the author talks about his travels in Japan to try and understand the history behind ninjas the subject of the book becomes about him and less about the topic he is writing about Don't get me wrong it's not that it totally destroys the book but I could have done without some of the

    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBAn easy to read brief history of Ninjas The author switches between history text and researcher's travelogue occasionally which makes certain parts of the ninja story real ie the old guy in Japan with an attic full of old armor and relieves the Japanese history newbie from to many names from Japanese history Some of the interesting parts are the modern legacy of the ninja there is even a chapter on James Bond


  9. Joe Joe says:

    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBPretty good book The author has a tendency to conflate any military action involving the Japanese and deception into being ninja like but it definitely covered the history of the KogaIga region well He does capture the chaos and shifting allegiances of feudal Japan although he tries to push the idea that ninja regions were Athenian democracies pretty hard So long and short I'm skeptical about a lot of it but it's a ripping read

    Kindle John Man ↠ Ninja eBook Ç ↠ ninja ebok, Ninja ePUBThe multitude of names and places was a tad confusing It took me a year to read Ninja so I will admit that my opinion may have differed if I had read it all in one sitting Having said that the book really shines when it details the beginnings of ninja culture The How to be a ninja sections were great as well as the chapters about the civil war
