There is a spanish translation available for sale through Pedro Fleitas's online shop. I've worked on translating it into english and I have portions of it done. It really is a very interesting book. Similar in ways to Ninpo wisdom for life.

that's cool, let me know if you finish it, I'd certainly be interested in an English version.

So, there's gonna be a published English version in the foreseeable future?

As an aside..
I commissioned (meaning: traded beer for service) an English translation of the last two chapters on health a few years ago. The person I asked to do this was a colleague in a cancer center research lab and when she finally finished with it she said that it was a very "strange" book. The translation certainly was strange probably owing to the lack of contextual connection to the source material.

Yeah, that's a cool book. I wish it was in English as there's some really neat stuff in there I've never heard him talk about in class or put in other books. I'm only aware of a chunk of it though as I have to ask my Japanese wife to translate it as best she can for me.

"Honey? Will you read me a bedtime story about Ninjas?" :)

If there is enough of an interest I would be glad to finish translating it and making it the translation available to the general public. However I must make it clear that it is a translation of the spanish translation, none the less it is a very interesting read.

Hmmm honestly I don't know but I'd sure like to help in the translation process (if able). I'll look up and let you know if there are any english versions of the book.
