草書 (そうしょ) (sōsho) or "Grass Script" is the style of calligraphy one often sees in "art" calligraphy. As Wikipedia explains, folks (like me) with knowledge of how to read and write "standard" kanji might not be able to read 草書.
On a quick perusal of the book I've acquired it's clear that the forms of 草書 I already have some degree of familiarity with based on my knowledge of kana.
But it's going to take some time to learn this, to make a gross understatement.
