First and foremost I m biased Besides being an avid DL fan I m a sucker for rite of passage stories related to Japanese martial arts and I was fortunate enough to translate this book in my native language Greek meaning I had the chance to work with it up close and personal The book is simply put great Although DL writes basically for the martial arts cognoscenti he s smart enough to make his language comprehensive to a broader audience at least he does in Autumn Lightning and in Persimmon Wind Autumn Lightning s seuel so to speak Even if you don t do martial arts you will enjoy at least exactly the half of the book Why exactly Because Autumn Lightning is actually two books Besides DL s personal journey into classical swordsmanship and Japan s culture the odd numbered chapters there is also a history of the school he was taught the even numbered chapters And funny thing while the former are fun in a Karate Kid sort of way the latter are also fun in a scholarly mature way At times hilariously funny at times heartbreakingly sad and most times profoundly wise Autumn Lightning has it all in spades If you are even remotely interested in Japan and its culture and especially if you care some for its martial culture ie the samurai and their world Autumn Lightning is probably among the Top Ten titles you will find in the English language The particularity of its subject considered this is not a five star book it s easily a ten star one
