    Oh, and I forgot:

    Morgan, Forrest - Living the Martial Way
    Hammas, Joe - Zen in the Martial Arts

    While the Hammas book can sometimes lapse into blind devotion and martial arts star f-ing, there are a number of excellent ideas contained within. Morgan on the otherhand can sometimes write a bit over the top in his notions about "warriorship." That said, I think his general train of thought is well reasoned.

    Both Passing the Guard and the guard by Ed Beneville.
    Jiujitsu Unleashed by Eddy Bravo
    Big Books of Combat by Bas Rutten
    Thai Boxing Dynamite -by Zoran Rebac
    Boxing the American Martial Art

    I did have a book on Nothern Shaolin Kung Fu, but i forgot the title and who wrote it. it was ok until they started talking about chi and pressure points.

    The Unfettered Mind by Takuan Shoho (good philosophy) i originally picked this up because i was reading Musashi and thought it would be cool to read about what the real Takuan Shoho was like.

    Hagakure by Yamamoto Tsunetomo (another good philosophy book)

    Awesome, thanks everyone. I might pick up that Ninja book so I don't have to keep on flipping out and cutting off heads and can just control the crap out of everyone :)

    With that I'd add Judo unleashed. If you do Judo it's VERY handy.

    I read a really cool biography of Jigoro Kano in like...9th or 10th grade...wish I could remember what it was called...I think his name was in the title...

    i'll have to go back to the highschool library and see.

    anyhow, I noticed 'lost in place' was called a memoir in bullshido and said it should be required reading for every middle-school kid with a Bruce Lee thing. (which sadly, I was one...)

    can someone tell me a bit about it?

    archery counts right?

    The Simple Art of Winning kicks ass, provided you're using the Western method and not the BEST method. The BEST proponents put out a book of their own, called Total Archery.

    No Holds Barred by (I think) Clyde or Clyve Gentry charts the evolution of MMA and is a very interesting read.
