You may have seen I have a new book out called The Path of the Ninja. Its from Hodder publishing and the best looking book I have ever written. I say have ever written but if you find this book far more readable than my other titles its because the whole thing was skillfully ghost written for me to help share my Ninja adventure with the world in a more readable. The content however is my true life story presented in a way that make it easy to follow and describes my experences as I felt at the time.
Please be clear that this is a different book from one on historical Ninjutsu called "The True Path of the Ninja" by another author.
Also be aware that there are some mixed up description for the book on some website which confuse the book contents with another.
Here is the Offical Description
