    If Bullshido had a Book of the Month Club

    Just finished reading The Logic of Steel by James LeFrond. It's a good read. LeFrond compiled data from over 250 encounters with edged weapons (attacker and defender), everything from kitchen knifes, Japanese swords, shanks, straight razors, machetes, pen knives, and screwdrivers.

    Reading this will dispel any myths about Ninja wrist manipulation techniques vs. knife attacks or West Side Story dueling encounters. The book is a reality check more than anything else. And Lefrond is no blowhard. He offers basic avoidance techniques but nothing else.

    Putting his picture on the cover in a fighting pose doesn't help the book, nor does including his encounters matrix (written on notebook paper with a pencil) But a good read anyway.
