    One thought on “Ninja Attack!: True Tales of Assassins, Samurai, and Outlaws”

    1. This informative and entertaining book traces the history of the ninja and discusses some of the secrets of ninjutsu the art of stealth Warning some of the illustrations and information particularly of the ku no ichi, or female ninja are risqu , even by American standards Also, a couple of illustrations are than a little gruesome, so I wouldn t recommend the book to anyone who hates the sight of blood Overall, I would say this book is probably appropriate for ages 16 and up, or even 18 and up.

    2. Entertaining and light hearted.A charming look at the origin of the ninja myth and the most in famous individuals associated with the history both historial and fictional.I found it informative and fun I particulatly liked the dossiers and how each person was appropriately labelled They included a nice range from the clearly fictional folk heroes to legitimately suspicious spymasters of the era.A quality piece of work and a good gift for any anime or manga fans.

    3. An easy, light read good humoured, and modern day witticism and style Covers largely on the renown ninjas, as well as others that actually work in tandem with, or were their masters employers Each portrayal is done in a dossier style, with a manga illustration depicting a defining moment of that particular individual s career as a ninja, or some prodigious feat And each would touch upon The Man , The Moment of Glory , and The End Informative bits in between these dossiers also let on about ninj [...]

    4. I suspect that this book about Ninjas was written by Ninjas since it claims that there are no Ninjas today What better way to conceal the existence of Ninjas than to claim there aren t any My suspicions as to the book s Ninja authorship are further heightened by the fact that it reads like the product of a martial arts expert than a literary master It is organizationally odd, stylistically over casual and relatively content lite Nevertheless, it contains some cool graphics, interesting snippets [...]

    5. There are some occasional annoying and bizarre mistakes Alexander the Great referred to as a Roman , but it is a solid collection of entertaining tales and biographies about ninja I particularly like how the book emphasized that ninja were often used as spies and irregular soldiers than assassins the common Western depiction The book is accurate insofar as it corroborates what I ve read elsewhere about many of the personalities mentioned and actual academic histories on ninjutsu and unconventi [...]

    6. Nice and fun to read without keeping facts figures aside It tells us not only about ninjas but also their rivals, masters, and also the criminal ninjas called Ninja Gone Bad This book gives information about the glory moments and the downfall of each subject It fulfills my expectation explaining shuriken and now I have an idea about how ninja in popular culture is related to magic scroll and mystical toad hint get to the last quarter of the book

    7. A fun read about true life Ninja who actually existed Some of the histories got interconnected and confusing but I mainly read it for the cool bits they had about Ninja weapons, tricks of the trade, original dress, and how some of their houses were set up I ll have to watch Ninja Assassin again now.

    8. Do you have any books that have died from mysterious accidents, or simply disappeared Then you might already have this book.

    9. I wish I could say I liked this, but ninja have never been particularly interesting to me I do, however, enjoy the history and the way it was presented.

    10. Skimming through the book, I thought it looked entertaining But when I read it, I felt it was really tedious I end up not reading it, just looking at the pictures and read a bit here and there.

    11. Enjoyed reading the history of Ninja It seems, however, that though they say there are no Ninja I would think there are and we just don t hear about them for obvious reasons.

    12. A cute and interesting book about ninja s through lots of biographies I got this for my little brother who s turned nine and he loves it

    13. True tales of crazy Japanese ninja that would appeal to manga and anime fans It s colourful, informative and has a great glossary.

    14. A nice and funny book with a bit of information It s not an encyclopedia far from it but has a funny tone of language and it s quite entertaining at that for a younger reader.
