Here is one of the most influential texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory ever to emerge from Asia. Composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction. It is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life. Thomas Cleary’s translation is immediately accessible, with an introduction that presents the spiritual background of the warrior tradition. This illustrated hardcover edition features a reading of the entire text on two audio CDs.
Miyamoto Musashi, who lived in Japan in the 1600s, was an undefeated dueler, a masterless samurai, and an independent teacher. He spent the last decades of his life refining and teaching his military science.
