When the undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi retired to a cave in 1643 and wrote The Book of Five Rings, a manifesto on the art of sword making, strategy and success for his students and future generations of samurai, he created one of the most insightful and incisive texts on strategic thinking in the history of Asia.Musashi gives timeless advice on defeating an opponent, throwing an opponent by surprise, creating confusion, and other techniques to overwhelm as an assailant that will resonate with the two martial artists and all other interested in skillfully managing conflicts.For Musashi, the path of martial arts has been a mastery of the mind rather than merely technical prowess, and it is this path of access to mastery that is the basis of teaching in The Book of Five Rings.William Scott Wilson translation is faithful to the original of the seventeenth century, Japanese text, while being wonderfully clear and legible.His erudition and insight into the profound 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 the Japanese artist Shiro Tsujimura.
