4.0 von 5 Sternen Have sword, will fight
Everybody should read this book. That's all there is to it. Musashi takes the reader into a world filled to the brim with devotion, self-respect, disciplin, honesty and purity of thought. Even though this book was written by and for warriors and samurai, and in a completely different time and culture, it is a remarkabe source of inspiration for selv-developement...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Musishi is a great swordsman -- not a good writer
With much anticipation I ordered this book. I had read some good things about it and was glad to finally have it in my hands. However, I was quickly disappointed with what it conatined. It's literally a book about his sword fighting belief/school. If that is what you want then that is what you'll get. I wanted more of a philosophical read with Zen gems but I found...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Have sword, will fight, 11. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Everybody should read this book. That's all there is to it. Musashi takes the reader into a world filled to the brim with devotion, self-respect, disciplin, honesty and purity of thought. Even though this book was written by and for warriors and samurai, and in a completely different time and culture, it is a remarkabe source of inspiration for selv-developement. Musashi's teachings are concise and to the point. He uses phrases like "you must understand this" and "you must practice diligently" and explains only general, but unquestionable and fundamental, concepts of the Way of the Warrior. These guidelines are not directly applicable in our time and age, but what is applicable are the things this book contains about working with yourself. Striving to achieve improvement on the inside as well as the outside.
It would be a lie to say that this book is a "positive" book. Taken litterally it's about how to become an efficient, albeit enlightened, killer. The value of this book comes from reading between the lines, and let me tell you: Those lines could fill volumes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen go Rin no sho, 11. Juni 2000
This is not a book about business, or about swordfighting for that matter. It is a book about The Way and perfecting oneself through The Way. I have been reading this book for more than ten years. Every translation I could find. As my underestanding of The Way grows so does my understanding of this book, and vice versa. It can be read easily in a day or two so read it as many times as you can. Everytime something new will reveal itself to you. Read it from front to back... take one chapter at a time...take one part of a chapter at a time. I have red the book every way I can think of! Sure, some of it is hard to follow...don't dismiss it just because you don't understand it! I have been practicing both Kendo and Iado for a long time. Believe me, the more you learn, the more you realize that you don't know anything! Musashi Knew!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Referred to this book as a business text?, 19. Dezember 1999
Von

(REAL NAME)   
I saw this book referred to in two or three business publications and couldn't resist getting a hold of it to find the connection between samurai and capitalist warrior. Boy, was I surprised! The other day I was cornered in the food court by members of a rival firm, and used Musashi's techniques to defend myself with a foot long deli sandwich. Seriously, the parallels between the two worlds are difficult to draw. Call me myopic. This seems to be an excellent manual for a samurai. But if you insist on extrapolating business principles from it, I also recommend "Taming and Training Cockatoos" (the similarities between nesting and portfolio analysis are flagrant!) as well as "Please To The Table" which appears to be a Russian cookbook, but also serves up a delicious recipe for managing sycophants! Seriously, if you're looking for a thoughtful, educating management book, read Drucker, if you want corporate strategy, read Porter, for economics, try Krugman. This is an old warrior manual that doesn't offer any new insight for the budding capitalist. If you absolutely have to find a classic and derive insight into managing for success, then go ahead and read Niccolo Machiaveli's "The Prince".
Cheers, and good luck

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply Outstanding !, 14. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This wonderfully edited translation makes the original text twice as valuable through it's very well-written foreword and the excellent commentaries that accompany each chapter.
Get it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read, Re Read, Re Read and you might understand, 29. Juni 2000

(REAL NAME)   
I read this book through once, and thought: okay, I just read a book about a 15th centurey samuri warrior, and he enlightened me all about how to fight with a sword. Great. Now what can I do with that.
But there is more, there is much much more. This book contains within it philosophy, and a sense of the greaterness of ones self in relation to the cosmos. Musashi didn't write a book just about how to fight with an antiquated sword, he wrote a book that allows the reader to see further than their petty lives and embrace a more global way of thinking.
Musashi wrote this book to enlighten the reader as to how he lived; and how he thought a warrior should live. And everyone today is a lawyer, whether it be in your job, in your social life or wherever, you are always fighting and planning on how to make things come out best in your favor; and this book helps you to realize these battles and win them.
This review is very ephemeral and doesn't say much; but it is tough to explain a book of this magnitude in a small 1000 word essay. You need to read this book to gain even a slight understanding of the magnitude of it; then you can reread it and hopefully gain a little more understanding; until in 50-60 years you might understand it fully. Maybe.
Read this book although 400 years old it applies more to today than ever.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captivating AND Thought Provoking, 7. März 2000
I don't know how I'll apply the principals in this book, but I will reread it many times - mostly, I enjoyed it as literature, and value the translator's notes! Maybe it is only unique because of who the author is, and when it was written, but that's enough! The book is priced so low as to be practically free, and is valuable even if you're not an executive or a swordsman. It is a classic in every sense.

4.0 von 5 Sternen eternal, 11. Dezember 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Book of Five Rings (Taschenbuch)
This book cannot be adequately evaluated or appreciated in a single reading or even ten. It is the attempt to relate the life-experience of a man who was super-human by today's standards. Read it. Wait a year. Read it again. Repeat process as necessary. This book can help you deal with any situation life can throw at you, if you can comprehend the content and apply it properly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Book of Five Rings, 11. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Book of Five Rings (Taschenbuch)
I thought this book was very deep and spiritual, in fact I use some of the idealogies which are contained in this book with my daily outlook on life. This book has opened/reawakened my true-self, moreover it has made me appreciate my surroudings in a 360 degrees perspective. Furthermore, I apperciate life and what I have got and what I can give back in a positive way from reading this book!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Invaluable and Timeless, 9. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Book of Five Rings (Taschenbuch)
I have read this book twice. Once because the subject matter interests me, and once because you have to read it twice to even begin to grasp it. I think the translation by Victor Harris allows you to take some of the deeper philosophical lessons out of the book, but doesn't leave so much of the technical aspects in that you get confused. I think this book is accessible to any reader, and still has its value as a great classic. I highly recommend it to anybody...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Victor Harris' translation is best, 24. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Book of Five Rings (Taschenbuch)
For serious students of Japanese swordsmanship, Victor Harris' translation is best. Captures the essence of the meaning of technical concepts best.
