A Book of Five Rings is one of the three great historical strategy books, accompanying The Art of War and The Prince. They are best appreciated when listened to together. As the Japanese consulted Demming from MIT after World War II about quality American style, the Americans began to study Musashi's A Book of Five Rings in the 1970s when the Japanese.

Performance?

The narrator is so difficult to listen to that I almost returned the book. Good content, horrible reading.

Poor recording, egotistic reading

I had to switch this iff in the first two minutes after hearing how Miyamoto Mushashi's legendary book of five rings was described as "Japans answer to American strategy" And i quote exactly!!! Nevermind Mr Brown that this book was written in the 1500's when America was still "Owned" by the natives who roamed the lands. How absolutely egotistic of you, you are one of the reasons that America gets such a bad write up globally. The recording quality is poor and the intonation of the reader is boring. Sorry but this is dire, avoid at all costs.
