Description

  • Shambhala Publications
  • 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.
