I really enjoyed reading The Klingon Art of War.

It gave me a better understanding of the Klingon culture. I enjoyed reading about their legendary warrior Kalahs.

The appendix of the book was just as informative as the rest of the book. I got to understand the Klingons a lot better than what I did just from watching Star Trek shows and movies. Klingons are warriors all the way through. They live by a certain code and they also die by that same code.

I would describe the Klingons a mix between Vikings and Barbarians. This book really gave you insight into their culture and their way of life. The Klingon Art of War was a good book, and I would recommend it to any Trekkie out there.

There were just a few parts that weren’t explained that well.
