I have it. It's a small book, a little more than 100 pages. 30 pages are about the life of Awa Kenzo and others are filled with quotes-teachings of Awa Kenzo, like "In the beginning, if you forget about focusing on your breath, you will easily lose concentration. Always keep your breath in your center." Personally, I liked it very much. His teachings are short and precised and quite clear. The only thing I didn't like about this book is: it's too small! :-)
I hope my comment was useful to you and I'm sorry I didn't answer immediately, I was away from Internet for some time.
