    eBook John Man î eBook Ninja MOBI ´ î coinfetti.co ninja mobile, 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

    eBook John Man î eBook Ninja MOBI ´ î coinfetti.co ninja mobile, 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 co

    eBook John Man î eBook Ninja MOBI ´ î coinfetti.co ninja mobile, 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 Man’s books I definitely wouldn’t recommend this; if there’s a better book out there about ninjas and their history I think I’d actually l

    eBook John Man î eBook Ninja MOBI ´ î coinfetti.co ninja mobile, 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

    eBook John Man î eBook Ninja MOBI ´ î coinfetti.co ninja mobile, 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 background info on the history of the shogun and the samurai makes for a VERY confusing read for anyone not already familiar with Japan If you have read anything else regarding the period then Ninja is an excellent companion piece If not the sheer number of names and places can be very overwhelmingan appendix of famous names and clans would have been very helpful

    eBook John Man î eBook Ninja MOBI ´ î coinfetti.co ninja mobile, 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 ramblings and commentary he has about the people he is talking to for information in Japan

    eBook John Man î eBook Ninja MOBI ´ î coinfetti.co ninja mobile, 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

    eBook John Man î eBook Ninja MOBI ´ î coinfetti.co ninja mobile, 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
