Nicholas Linnear is a master ninja, pustbader son of a Chinese mother and British father. The words burned into his brain like something brain burny. Re-reading this, having previously read it over 20 years ago and was eri to find that it has certainly stood the test of time.

When he finally did let me read it I was blown away.

There’s a plethora of information here about the History of Japan and even a bit about China in explaining the origins and continuation of the ninja.

In fact, he’s the 1 user of the word, per Google, though perhaps it was a more popular word in the ’70s than today but not so popular as to have a dictionary entry in any of the common ones available today.

I would like to thank NetGalley and Open Road Media for the chance to read this e-book in exchange for an honest review.

Given eeric vast history Eastern cultures have in comparison to the relatively recent history of Western cultures, it is understandable that the two often find ninjq other incomprehensible. It stuck in my mind over the years as one of the best books I had ever read.
