Setting down his thoughts on swordplay, on winning, and on spirituality, legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi intended this modest work as a guide for his immediate disciples and future generations of samurai. He had little idea he was penning a masterpiece that would be eagerly devoured by people in all walks of life centuries after his death. Along with The Art of War by Sun Tzu, The Book of Five Rings has long been regarded as an invaluable treatise on the strategy of winning. Musashi's timeless advice on defeating an adversary, throwing an opponent off-guard, creating confusion, and other techniques for overpowering an assailant was addressed to the readers of earlier times on the battlefield, and now serves the modern reader in the battle of life. In this new rendering by the translator of Hagakure and The Unfettered Mind, William Scott Wilson adheres rigorously to the seventeenth-century Japanese text and clarifies points of ambiguity in earlier translations. In addition, he offers an extensive introduction and a translation of Musashi's rarely published The Way of Walking Alone. This gift-book edition also features original art by Musashi himself as well as new calligraphy by Japanese artist Shiro Tsujimura.

This book is a culmination of legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi's life experiences, values, and wisdom all laid out in a beautifully . As a precursor to the Book of Five Rings one should be aware of the Japanese mind. The Buddhist principle of emptiness is also helpful, albeit not necessary.

In the Book of Five Rings Musashi gives the pupil the understanding of how to win in battle. Musashi lived in the hieght of the Japanese Reniassance.

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. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess-and it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in The Book of Five Rings. This brilliant manifesto is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life.

Miyamoto, Musashi, five rings, book, go rin no sho, strategy, zen, samurai. In succinct detail, Miyamoto records ideal postures, blows, and psychological tactics to put the enemy off guard and open the way for attack. Most important of all is Miyamoto's concept of rhythm, how all things are in harmony, and that by working with the rhythm of a situation we can turn it to our advantage with little effort. But like Zen, this requires one task above all else, putting the book down and going out to practice.

The Book of Five Rings (五輪書, Go Rin no Sho) is a text on kenjutsu and the martial arts in general, written by the Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi around 1645. There have been various translations made over the years, and it enjoys an audience considerably broader than only that of martial artists and people across East Asia: for instance, some foreign business leaders find its discussion of conflict and taking the advantage to be relevant to their work in a business context.

a book of five rings -. There are various Ways. I have been many years training in the Way of strategy, called Ni Ten Ichi Ryu, and now I think I will explain it in writing for the first time. There is the Way of salvation by the law of Buddha, the Way of Confucius governing the Way of learning, the Way of healing as a doctor, as a poet teaching the Way of Waka, tea, archery, and many arts and skills. Each man practises as he feels inclined.

A Book of Five Rings book. In the Way of strategy as a warrior you must study fully other martial arts and not deviate even a little from the Way of the warrior. Translated by V. Harris. I first read Miyamoto Musashi's The Book of Five Rings many years ago, while I was a P. candidate in California. I was intrigued by how his nine principles seemd to apply to life in general and leaders in particular, in addition to his intended audience of swordsmen. With your spirit settled, accumulate practice day by day, hour by hour.

Talk about The Book of Five Rings (The Way of the Warrior Series)

I would place Musashi-san's Book of the Five Rings on par with classical teachers like Sun Tzu, Laozi. His book lacks detail compared to some of the classics, but that is one of its strengths. He spends approximately 1/6th of the short book on the movements and tactics for sword-fighting, which may be of varying value to readers - depending on their interest on the subject.

Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" places emphasis on large scale military operations; which lends itself to modern business (in the mind of the reader, and in many modern expositions on a domain-by-domain basis) - supply chains, market saturation, globalization, operational budgeting, etc., Musashi-san's "Way" is likewise applicable. Musashi-san focuses on large scale and small scale (individual) battle, offering useful comparisons and contrasts. For me, the individual focus was extremely insightful and personal. It may suit individuals who have situations of high responsibility or discretion (e.g., negotiations, debate, martial arts, software development), or cases where an individual does not have an abundance of resources or allies - and opportunity is gained through competition.

The book is highly quotable, and I found myself reading this short <100 page book over a month's time because every few pages gave me something to think about, research, mull over, and discuss. Almost paradoxically, his vagueness and insistence that the reader practice, research, and train builds toward a thesis - "By learning one thing, one should know 10000 (myriads)."

As a retired IT person and CIS college instructor - my lesson on any topic was not to memorize procedures or things easily looked up in technical references; but principles, how information flows, how to identify processes (and problems in them), to detect the presence of patterns, or put simply "How is this problem or system similar or different from others you've encountered. I wish I had known about this book sooner, as he does an excellent job demonstrating this approach to learning.

This Edition:
Great translation of an excellent book in a small but well constructed hardback. The addition of various calligraphy and Musashi's The Way of Walking Alone are a welcomed treat that adds further depth to an already remarkable book.

This book:
The Go Rin No Sho (a.k.a. The Book of Five Rings) is the definitive book on Samurai Philosophy by the archetype of The Wandering Samurai himself, Miyamoto Musashi. Throughout his remarkable life, Musashi developed a philosophy and a style all his own. As stated early in the text, his philosophy is not Budhism, nor Taoism nor any other existing philosophy. It is rather a hard won and practical philosophy, almost a code of conduct and a way of viewing the world that is not bound by esoteric nor abstract thinking. Instead, his writing is about a gradual awakening and clarity of thought that his many and varied experiences led him to. Despite being written by a rampant, unwashed and bewilderingly intelligent swordsman with an odd smattering of formal education, his ability to elucidate the intricacies of strategy and apply it to all aspects of life are staggering and surprisingly relevant even now. You do not have to be a fan of Japan, Samurai, the Edo period, eastern philosophy or any other genre you may want to file this book under in order to appreciate it. It is relatively short, easy to read, to the point and like the man himself, deadly accurate. Enjoy the genius that is The Book of Five Rings.

This is for the Kindle version upgraded to audio.

This is the first time I have listened to this classic Japanese work having read it twice before this audio version. I must say that it is much better listening to an excellent narration than to the voice in my head. The principles applied in this book explained through the use of the samari sword has stood the test of time. These principles have been successfully adopted and applied in Japanese business in the modern age. It is a wonderful little book that I will probably listen to again sometime in the future.

-This book was made for the intention of improving ones skill in the way of the sword, if you are not familiar with sword fighting techniques you may find trouble understanding.

-The writer is a famous warrior, not a scholar... therefore there is a lack of expression and elaboration. Hence, you read 'this can not be expressed in words' so often, you would grasp what he means via practical practice.

-The writer gives personal views which sometimes demote other schools in way of the sword, which sometimes can be at fact and sometimes otherwise. Some skills can work out great for some while doesn't work out so fine for others.

At the end, the information provided in the book of five rings are very useful in terms of opponent vs opponent of any kind, even in a chess game of mind vs mind, if you got the imagination and analyzing skill to find the connection with other real life satuation where you have to go up against someone physically or emotionally. if it wasn't for those 3 points mentioned above, I would have gave it 5/5 stars, still, I am very glad I bought the book.

Interesting book. Parts of it were hard for me to follow. Such as the parts on types of attacks and parrying... but I had to read everything because even In those paragraphs such as stabbing the heart there would be a lesson in life. I got a great picture in my head while reading this of what was being said. If you open your mind and really read it. You caN learn something from each paragraph if not each sentence
