Got the e-book yesterday, for me was a superb read all round. Certainly lives up to its title, it has something for everybody and covers a very broad range of styles / substyles, I hadnt even heard of some of them before so it was great to see lesser known styles getting some coverage and it has some cracking interviews, Iain's included. For a long book it wasnt costly either for the ebook or the paperback which is another plus and it didnt even feel long reading it. Well impressed overall, very enjoyable read and would definitely recommend it

Took a punt on this book and really glad I did. Majority of katate books I've read were almost always either instructional or historical types usually focusing on one of the main four or five styles we're all familiar with. The author did a very good job of shining the spot light on Karate beyond the well known styles and that's what made it so refreshing. I came away with a deeper appreciation of the variety of styles that are out there. It was great reading the back stories of the masters interviewed in the book and hearing their views and nuggets of advice and how they caught the Karate bug. Very enjoyable book and very inspiring too, well worth checking out
