Description

    • Imported from USA.

    Setting down his thoughts on swordplay, on winning, and on spirituality, legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi intended
    this modest work as a guide for his immediate disciples and future generations of samurai. He had little idea he was
    penning a masterpiece that would be eagerly devoured by people in all walks of life centuries after his death.

    Along with The Art of War by Sun Tzu, The Book of Five Rings has long been regarded as an invaluable treatise on the
    strategy of winning. Musashi's timeless advice on defeating an adversary, throwing an opponent off-guard, creating
    confusion, and other techniques for overpowering an assailant was addressed to readers of earlier times on the
    battlefield and now serves the modern listener in the battle of life.

    In this new rendering by the translator of Hagakure and The Unfettered Mind, William Scott Wilson adheres rigorously to
    the 17th-century Japanese text and clarifies points of ambiguity in earlier translations. In addition, he offers an
    extensive introduction and a translation of Musashi's rarely published The Way of Walking Alone.
