Many typos, run on sentences and just plain confusing wording.

This "book" would have been better if included in a volume about ninja in general. There just isn't enough information for a stand-alone book. I was left feeling that I didn't learn much of anything about Hanzo. Many typos, run on sentences and just plain confusing wording. At one point Ieyasu became Leyasu. And, the Koga ninja were often referred to as the "Koka" ninja. Also, it was hard to place certain events in Hanzo II's timeline because the author did not include dates for many events. He also could have expanded.

This compact volume brings to life the trail that leads to the historical Hattori Hanzo and to the most famous incarnation of that title, the feared Devil Hanzo. A master of strategy, esoteric science, the martial arts and a ninja captain, his story is greater than fiction and found within these pages.

Hattori Hanzo, one of the most famous names in ninja lore, a screen icon and a sorely misunderstood portion of Japanese history.

Most lived as farmers who carried their skills as their side business through the pre-modern era of the Edo period, as those bushi of the early Warring States period gradually faded into the mists of time.

I love Japanese history and I jumped at the chance to buy a book about the elusive Hattori Hanzo, one of my favorite historical figures of Japan. The problem with this book is that there isn't enough historical literature to even write a book about him! This "book" would have been better if included in a volume about ninja in general. There just isn't enough information for a stand-alone book. I was left feeling that I didn't learn much of anything about Hanzo.

The editing for this book was horrible. Many typos, run on sentences and just plain confusing wording. At one point Ieyasu became Leyasu. And, the Koga ninja were often referred to as the "Koka" ninja. Also, it was hard to place certain events in Hanzo II's timeline because the author did not include dates for many events. He also could have expanded on these events rather than just skimming over them as well as other facts.

Overall, it was a horribly done book, and I could have gotten the same information from the internet. (Though, I will admit I was surprised to learn that the "Hattori Hanzo" name was given to the head of the household from Hanzo I to Hanzo IV and that Hanzo II is the famous "Devil Ninja".)

This book is more a catalog of different articles about the Hanzo ninjas.
Some articles don't even fill a complete page .
It was not worth being bought.
