Books read in 2016: No. 11 -- The Swordsman's Quick Guide, Book 1: The Seven Principles of Mastery

by Guy Windsor

Started: April 26
Finished: April 27

Notes: I've read a couple of other books by this modern swordsman and appreciated them, especially as he focuses upon the Italian school (for lack of better words). So, it was a natural to check out this e-book about the principles for mastering the sword.

Mini review: This little book was a bit more general instead of focusing upon swordsmanship alone, but the practices here could definitely help with sword fighting. In truth, this was more of a brief self-help guide to being successful at life, and again, much of this is appropriate for swording.
