Does it include the whole gloss or just the sections mentioned in the abstract?
I had a read through the book a while ago. It is interesting, and there are some good ideas in there. However, I found it to contain some assertions about mechanics with which I disagree strongly (such as positioning the knee during steps and stances); it also includes a translation of only part of the gloss, and interpretation for only part of the system. It would be much more valuable if the next volume could be bought alongside it, to have a complete overview of the interpretation.
If the second volume could be available, and both the interpretation and the translation completed, then I would definitely recommend it, even if only to have access to another translation and another point of view on how to do things. However, without the rest of the translation and interpretation, it's not so helpful.
