Five Rings Strategy, The Classic Guide.. Miyamoto Musashi
1074..Overlook Press, The Japanese entrepreneur, is not nurtured at an Asian equivalent of our Harvard Business School.
Instead, he studies, lives and works according to an almost-mythic tome written in 1645 by the great Samurai, Miyamoto Musashi. Musashi was Japan's most renowned warrior. By age 30 he had fought and won over 60 duels by killing his opponents.

When the undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi retreated to a cave in 1643 and wrote The Book of Five Rings, a manifesto
on swordsmanship, strategy, and winning for his students and generations of samurai to come, he created one of the most
perceptive and incisive texts on strategic thinking ever to come from Asia.
Musashi gives timeless advice on defeating an adversary, throwing an opponent off-guard, creating confusion, and other
techniques for overpowering an assailant that will resonate with both martial artists and everyone else interested in
skillfully dealing with conflict. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply
technical prowess—and it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in The Book of Five Rings.
William Scott Wilson’s translation is faithful to the original seventeenth-century Japanese text while being wonderfully
clear and readable. His scholarship and insight into the deep meaning of this classic are evident in his introduction
and notes to the text. This edition also includes a translation of one of Musashi’s earlier writings, “The Way of
Walking Alone,” and calligraphy by Japanese artist Shiro Tsujimura.
