When my Ninja Handbook arrived I was full of sweet anticipation and let me say...it NEVER disappoints! It's hilarious and page-turnery and full of charts and illustrations and pictures and seriously funny instructions and guidelines and exercises and beasts and weapons...and I mean PACKED FULL! It's got somewhere around 300 pages and I didn't want to stop reading it. And it's FUNNY...pop-culture skewering, very well written and non-repetitive. Two last words before I die: BUY IT!
