Few works of literature speak almost equally to the businessman, the philosopher, and the practitioner of the martial arts. Musashi's great classic, until now unknown in the West except by reputation, is one which speaks to all three. Famous for over 300 years, A Book of Five Rings is likely the most perceptive guide to strategy ever written. Book jacket.

Fundamentally vapid and empty, written by a man who may have been a brilliant warrior and tactician but was certainly not a philosopher of any merit. Frankly, anyone who lauds this book has drank the cool-aid. Do not waste your time.

Read in an analogical way, what is written can be used in a myriad of ways in life, excluding personal relationships. Read more literally, its a bit awkward to sort out what he is saying without drawings or someone with whom the reader can try out the various techniques. The manner of writing is rather brusque. It seems that the Star Wars movies used Japanese swordsmanship for the Jedi knight light sabre battles.
