This new title in the Art of Wisdom series is a luxuriously illustrated edition of the ultimate Japanese warrior classic. Written by the legendary swordsman Musashi Miyamoto, The Five Rings(c.1645) is more than just a manual on sword-fighting techniques: its Zen philosophy offers tactics and strategies as relevant to personal success today as they were to 17th-century samurai. The Five Ringsspeaks to every age about the essential roles of harmony and self-mastery in our lives. In addition to The Five Rings, this beautiful volume includes two additional short texts by Miyamoto: The Art of Swordsmanshipand The Way of Self-Reliance.
Musashi Miyamoto (c.1584-1645) was a duelist and renowned warrior who fought his first duel at the age of 13 and was never defeated. He wrote The Five Rings in a cave during the last years of his life.
