    If we separate ourselves from Martial Arts Style A and its advantages over 'Style B' just for a second.

    I have noticed that a lot of the books available are badly written, longwinded, boring and unimaginative. Even the great MA systems seem to suffer this blight. It's not just teachers with poor English. But also a general lack of organising their thoughts, lack of clarity and transparency.

    Surely photo's & illustrations are indispensable. The world of training videos has certainly altered our attitudes towards training textbooks ?

    What books are well written ? handy to use, and written in a style which is an exemplar for all others ?

    For openers : I think all the Mark Hatmaker books are very well written.

    Contributions please ?
