With the virtue of strategy, I practice many arts and abilities - all things with no teacher. To write this book, I did not use the law of Buddha or the teachings of Confucius, neither old war chronicles nor books on martial tactics. I take up my brush to explain the true spirit of this Ichi school as it is mirrored in the way of heaven and Kwannon. The time is the night of the 10th day of the 10th month, at the hour of the tiger.

A Must for All Martial Artists
Having studied the martial arts for a majority of my life, I have read and listened to multiple variations of Miyamoto Musashi's The Book of Five Rings. This book is the foundation for several Japanese martial arts. However, the application of the lessons in this book have also been applied to many businesses and business schools.
What I enjoyed the most about this particular version of the book is that it was straight forward. Many other versions want to go off on a tangent where someone has attempted to analyze what Musashi was saying in the book. In this version, the listener can make his or her own conclusions and interpretations.
There narrator did a great job with the narration. I'm thankful that he did not try to speak in a fake Japanese accent as with most versions of this book.
I was given this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

The Book of Five Rings is a classic. It's a life book. It's a management book. It should be required reading for everyone. Why? Life lessons people. Confrontation and communication are key parts to the human narrative. If we each remembered to listen to this book yearly, a lot of that confrontation and communication would happen in a more insightful and clear way. I received this book in return for my honest review.
