Author: Richard Cohen
Genre: It’s a history of swords and swordsmanship.
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 7
My overall opinion: It was passably interesting, aimed at true sword enthusiasts. I read most, though not quite all of it, and skimmed the more boring (to me) passages. The most interesting chapter was the Swashbuckling one, about swords used in plays and especially in movies.
