Understand? Good. Play! has 17 main chapters divided by theme, entitled the likes of "On Training," "On Striking" and "On Heart." Interspersed throughout are several "call-outs" related to the main chapters. The book also has seven feature articles, which are independent diatribes by Hatsumi-sensei on such things as "Tasty Budō" and the "Benevolent Heart." In short, Understand? Good. Play! is a testament to Sōke's wisdom.
In addition to the complete content of the original printing, the second edition gives a "behind-the-scenes" look at the original U?G.P! project, including reflections by key individuals. The bonus material includes copies of Hatsumi-sensei's hand-edits to the original manuscript, a look at the design mock-ups used to guide the project, explanations of key photos in the book, and 10 new photographs.
Price: $39.95 + S/H (approximate equivalent to one training session with Sōke at Hombu Dōjō)
