Review:

"Embraced by many contemporary readers as a manual on how to succeed in life."--"Library Journal"

From the Back Cover:

"On Wall Street, when Musashi talks, people listen".
'Time'

Japan's executives have long applied Mushashi's teachings to their business methods. This book- the original life-guide by Japan's greatest warrior- means you can do so too.

Written in 1645 by the most famous and unconquerable of all the samurai, 'A Book of Five Rings' is the classic guide to kendo swordsmanship and a distillation of the philosophies of Zen, Shinto and Confucius.

The West is now discovering what the Japanese have always known: that the ancient wisdom of the Samurai Way provides a strategy for decision and action in all areas of life- the home, the battleground and the boardroom.

"The supreme book on strategy…if you have wondered how it is that the Japanese can cleave through Western business communities like a samurai sword through butter, the answer lies not in more robots on the factory floor or company sing-songs at 9 a.m. It lies in 'A Book of Five Rings'"
