Summary: Unusual for a book on Aikido, this one has no pictures. It is a book-length essay on what one can learn from practicing Aikido. In the introduction, the author says, "There are many tools that can be used for self-exploration and expression. Aikido is one such tool." And, "I examine the many lessons [of Aikido practice] for ways to bring those lessons out from the training hall into everyday activities of living." The author is a 3rd Dan in Aikido and has trained in the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education.
