Totally Tae Kwon Do

The Global Tae Kwon Do Magazine
Most Rated WTF / Kukkiwon Books

The following Top 30 is a chart of WTF / Kukkiwon based books, voted on by the readers of Totally Tae Kwon Do magazine.

The survey rates 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.

To find out more about a book listed here or to order a book from this site click on its cover or title (see note regarding Amazons below).
