Synopses & Reviews

Review:

There are several translations of this classic, written by exceptional swordsman and Japanese cultural hero Miyamoto Musashi in 1643. Each one has a "flavor", but the overall messages in the text remain timeless. This is required reading for any martial artist studying a Japanese art, and recommended reading for all martial artists in general. It is brutally pragmatic, scientifically agressive, decicivley ruthless, and great. So it's no wonder that it's also essential reading for businessmen around the world. Recommended by Clyde B.
