The Book of Five Rings, by Miyamoto Musashi (DELUXE SILKBOUND EDITION), hardback book
“This deluxe silkbound gift-edition presents The Book of Five Rings, a classic Japanese text written by undefeated swordsman Miyamoto Musashi. In it, he records his “true principles” which guarantee victory in martial arts and on the battlefield. Instead of relying on religion or theory, Musashi based his writings on his own experience, observation, and reason.
The scrolls, published as The Book of Five Rings, have recently gained an international reputation in the business world as a means of resolving differences and achieving success. But their delineation of the psychological strength, rigorous self-control, and practical application necessary for dealing with physical and mental conflict also has a wider relevance and can be usefully applied to all our lives.
Featuring beautiful full-colour illustrations that complement the text, this luxurious gold-embossed hardback makes a perfect gift.”
