Old Manual, Still Relevant
Reviewed in the United States on July 5, 2011
I don't know what the reviewer right before me was doing but I downloaded this also and found everything, pictures and all. You have to know how to use the Go-To function on your kindle to get to the menu for the table of contents. Once you get there you'll be able to find everything just fine.
As many said the manual is old, yes but still has many relevant topics and instructions. For the inexperenced in hand to hand combat this would be a good starter companion to a real-life martial arts or self defense class. Real life experience is always better.
Sure, there are more up to date/current defense manuals out there, but who can argue with free? As one reviewer said, the human body is still the same as it was in the 1950's, so most of the information you'll find here is useful.
