As Kenji Tokitsu translated this master piece of the east he was careful enough to signalize and analyze the most important passages and meanings. His expertise in martial arts is key in this process.
The Book of the five rings is in it self aproximatly 54 pages, but this book is some 200. Don't be deterred by this fact. All this extra material is what many would strugle to find. A deep interpretation and analisys of all the context that surrounds Gorin no sho (Book of five ring).
Together it brings as well the rare texts that preceded the Book of five rings, like "Thirty-five instructions on strategy" and "The way to be followed alone".
Truly an eye opener.

Amazing book. I think that it is very difficult but not unreachable to apply some of the principles to the modern way of life. The discipline and the balance to achieve excellence in long term , is just remarkable. I strongly recommend this book to everyone who wishes to enrich his knowledge into strategy and to the development of his spirit.
