"You can attain understanding with which to win against ten thousand." Toward the end of his life, the great samurai warrior Miyamoto Musashi set down the secrets of his legendary success-the timeless principles of craft, skill, timing, and spirit that result in victory. His emphasis on strategic thinking, concentration, appropriate caution, choice of weapon, and work ethic reflects the traditional Japanese approach to life. At once pragmatic and philosophical, The Book of Five Rings is an enduring guide to enlightenment that enriches all aspects of life-both public and private-and provides the tools and wisdom necessary for success in any human endeavor. This acclaimed English translation was prepared jointly by a team of Western and Japanese scholars for the Nihon Services Corporation, an interpreting, translating, and business counseling service dedicated to breaking down cultural and communication barriers between Japan and the United States. This edition includes explanatory notes and commentary on each chapter. Softcover.
