Many people say John Danaher's history section in Mastering jiu jitsu is the best they have read on the subject. Is this the same as the histroy section in Brazillian Jiu jitsu Theory and Technique by Renzo & Royler Gracie?

I wasn't sure if this should go in general BS or the history section.

T&T's history section is much more shallow than Mastering. Danaher's section essentially destroys the Bodhidarma theory and every other dubious claim on the history of martial arts.

Thanks. Guess I have another book to add to the want list.

I have the Machado books, I think it is pretty darn good.
