This manga version of The Book of Five Rings, the iconic book of confrontation and victory by the famed 17th-century duellist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, reinvigorates the classic, making it more accessible and appealing to a wide audience.
With atmospheric drawings and an abridged text adapted from William Scott Wilson's fine translation, the text comes alive both as a guide to swordsmanship and strategy, and as a view into Musashi's world. Written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their lives.
