This manga version of The Book of Five Rings,the iconic book of confrontation and victory by the famed seventeenth-century duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, reinvigorates the classic, making it more accessible and appealing to a wide audience. With atmospheric drawings and a distilled but faithful text adapted by acclaimed manga writer Sean Michael Wilson, The Book of Five Ringscomes alive both as a guide to swordsmanship and strategy, and as a view into Musashi's world. The Book of Five Ringsis a brilliant manifesto, written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life. The text is adapted from William Scott Wilson's translation, which is faithful to the original seventeenth-century Japanese text while also being wonderfully clear and readable.
