Book Description Report this book

Miyamoto Musashi's Go Rin no Sho or the book of five rings, is considered a classic treatise on military strategy, much like Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Chanakya's Arthashastra. The five "books" refer to the idea that there are different elements of battle, just as there are different physical elements in life, as described by Buddhism, Shinto, and other Eastern religions. Through the book Musashi defends his thesis: a man who conquers himself is ready to take it on on the world, should need arise.

Jervis Pereira

A deeply philosophical book, based on the learning of Miyamoto Mushashi. Adds deeper insights to his biography by Eiji Yoshikawa. A fantastic book on strategy of the war that is life!
