This little book absorbed me from start to finish.  I have found that reading Gichin Funakoshi brightens up my spirits and inspires me to practice more and smarter.  I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in karate, who is thinking of starting or already has.  While billed as Gichin Funakoshi's autobiography, it is not a dry chronological account of his life.  He shares anecdotes of his experiences and relationships with other people to show the importance of karate in his life.  As a woman, I appreciated that he talks of women practicing karate matter-of-factly.
