The Book of Five Rings (Hardcover)
Legendary warrior Miyamoto Musashi wrote down his thoughts on swordplay, victory, and spirituality in this tiny work with the intention of serving as a guide for his close followers and subsequent samurai generations. He had no idea that he was creating a masterpiece that people from all walks of life would greedily devour decades after his passing.
The Book of Five Rings has long been recognised as a priceless treatise on winning tactics, alongside Sun Tzu's The Art of War. Aimed at readers in earlier eras on the battlefield, Musashi's timeless counsel on overcoming an adversary, surprising an adversary, creating confusion, and other techniques for overpowering an assailant now aids the modern listener in the battle of life.
