"I wish I'd had this beautiful book back in 1983 when Kevin Eastman and I created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-it would have helped a lot! At the very least, the 'ninja stuff' in our comic book would have been quite a bit more authentic." -Peter Laird, co-creator, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
"A must read for ninja fans. And the illustrations are brilliant! I wish there was a Japanese edition of this book." -Takashi Okazaki, creator of Afro Samurai
"A very enjoyable and well researched book that de-mystifies the ninja of legend." -Stan Sakai, creator of Usagi Yojimbo
