Tae Kwon Do Books
The survey asked readers of the magazine to rate books according to their value (in terms of information) and differs from Amazon's top 100 lists, which lists the 'Best Sellers' as opposed to the 'Best Books', as cheaper books often sell more than more expensive ones, but in actuality are a false economy.

The survey was split up into sections and the following Top 30 lists represent those sections, which were ITF/Ch'ang Hon based books, WTF/Kukkiwon based books and others (books that either didn't fit one category or covered both).

Overall, readers voted on 135 different Tae Kwon Do books (only rating the ones they actually own).
The following charts feature (we think) feature every Tae Kwon Do book ever released (up until October 2011 and/or that we know of), from newish books to rare books.

Books endorsed by the ITF, WTF or TAGB feature in their own polls, as these are 'pushed' a lot more for certain organisations students and thus would result in an uneven poll.

Below is the charts for each section of the survey, with links to Amazon UK. To view the same lists with links to other Amazons (only USA at present, but others coming soon), that are closer to you or within your Country, please click a flag or link below:

During September & October 2011, we ran the second of our Totally TKD Most Rated Books survey. In total, we surveyed 135 Tae Kwon Do books, which you will find in these charts. As well as the 135, there are another 17 books we have found since the survey, that didn't make it into the charts, plus five new books and they are all listed here irrespective. Making a total of 157 Tae Kwon Do books listed within these pages.
