So I’m slowly building up my library of Warrior path specific books. It is somewhat slow coming as I have been building my Celt library for a long time, but this entry I will probably continue to add to as long as this blog exists.
I won’t begin to speak about what books should and shouldn’t be in a Warriors library as that is personal choice that can be dictated by one’s focus of martial art, weapon of choice or general viewpoint. I can only speak about the types of books I will classify in such a manner for my own personal collection.
Here is my starting list:
Zen in the Martial Arts – Joe Hyams
Complete Krav Maga – Darren Levine & John Whitman
No Holds Barred Fighting: The Ultimate Guide to Conditioning – Mark Hatmaker
Training for Warriors: The Ultimate MMA Workbook – Martin Rooney
The Mixed Martial Arts Handbook – John Ritschel
The Navy Seal Workout – Mark De Lisle
The Gleason’s Gym Total Body Boxing Workout for Women – Hector Roca & Bruce Silverglade (good general boxing instruction & the workouts kick your butt)
Fight Like a Girl…and Win – Lori Hartman Gervasi *Highly recommended for female empowerment
Armed & Female – Paxton Quigley (wishlist)
The Art of War – Sun Tzu (special edition also includes Frederick the Great’s Instructions to His Generals and Machiavelli’s The Prince)
Celtic Warriors – Timothy Newark
Lords of Battle: The World of a Celtic Warrior – Stephen Allen
SAS Survival Guide – John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman
