The Way of the Living Sword
The duel ended very quickly as Nadi struck Bottino's hand, causing him to drop the weapon. Later Nadi fought and severely injured a journalist who had mocked him. He also challenged a fellow fencing champion Edoardo Mangiarotti because he felt that Mangiarotti was favored to him by the Italian Olympic Committee. Nadi proposed to use pistols, which Mangiarotti declined.

Shelves: nonfiction , fencing , biography. Aldo Nadi was arguably one of the greatest fencers in history. And he knew it. His autobiography demonstrates the size of his ego. He was a notorious womanizer and gambler and lived a very high life in Europe. His bitterness at not being able to achieve the same lifestyle in the post-war United States is palpable.
All that said, Nadi was very intelligent and wrote well. The books is a fascinating although obviously biased peek into a great mind. Sep 07, Hien rated it liked it Shelves: nonfiction. An interesting look into the mind of an egomaniac. Aldo Nadi was a great fencer who also suffered from an inferiority complex. He was overshadowed by his brother Nedo who was arguably a better fencer and won more gold medals in the Olympics.

Aldo compensated for this inferiority complex with a towering ego. It comes across in the book where he constantly compares himself to his brother and says he is better. Mar 01, Steven rated it really liked it. Maestro Nadi was not a very nice man. As a fencer he was par excellence. He was the right man with the right skills in the right place and left a legacy which will never be equaled.
