The first major pop history of the Japanese stealth assassins, John Man's Ninja is a meticulously researched, entertaining blend of mythology, anthropology, travelogue, and history of the legendary shadow warriors.

Spies, assassins, saboteurs, and secret agents, Ninja have become the subject of countless legends that continue to enthrall us in modern movies, video games, and comics—and their arts are still practiced in our time by dedicated acolytes who study the ancient techniques.

Ninja: 1,000 Years of the Shadow Warrior, by British historian John Man, is as colorful and intriguing as the warriors it so vividly brings to life.

John Man is the author ofAttila, Genghis Khan, The Great Wall, Gobi: Tracking the Desert, Ninja, Samurai, and other works. Educated at Oxford and the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, he was awarded Mongolia’s Friendship Medal in 2007.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting I learned many new things about the Ninja when reading this book. Ninja are not quite like what is commonly shown in pop culture, as there is much more to them than this. John Man reveals these lesser known details about the Ninja in an almost story-like fashion that kept me engaged from cover to cover. Overall, this is a very informative and engaging book.
