Samurai commonly describes a warrior in Japan who serves a lord, using combat skills and living by the code of Bushido. But not everyone followed the code so directly, nor was every samurai so bold and courageous. So while the truth is somewhere between the idealized icon of fidelity and bravery, and bullies with swords, this work features the samurai who lived by their code.
Inspired by the great and legendary samurai themselves, this work of short stories, poems, and quotes is meant to evoke, however briefly, life from the viewpoint of the samurai.

An Interesting Look at Way of the Samarai
It was well-spent in the sense that it's like a crash course on the lifestyle of a samurai. It stresses the importance of their beliefs and practices. The stories within this work echo some of the legendary tales of the samurai, so it's interesting to have a different take on those tales. Anyone who is interested in that will find some appreciation in the content of the book.
Well-pronounced, friendly, consistent
It made me more interested in the ways of the samurai.
The narration could use more feeling. There's not much variance or inflection to help portray the scene.
