As you can imagine I disagree with your perspective. I respectfully suggest our differences can be attributed in part to having come to the discussion with different backgrounds & having heard the various stories from people who did not like one another for many reasons, often good reasons. But I do feel that this work is powerful as it outlines how TKD developed IN THE 20TH CENTURY, not 2,000 years ago! It also shows who was involved in the development process, clearly showing who came up with the name of TKD & applied it to the system that they were developing, when others were still using the karate associated names, like kongsoodo, tangsudo, kown bup & then embracing the taesoodo name. More importantly it also shows how Korea used TKD & how its politics caused so much harm to so many people.
