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 eternal, 11. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
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 A must-have., 8. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I have read this book twice, once looking at it from a martial artist's view, and second as a businessman. It is a must have for not only businessmen and martial artists, but for all. Strategies for life and all its aspects can be interpreted from this book, though it may be difficult to do so. A philosophical and deep view on the gears of life and how to run it with ease.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ISBN 0553351702 is for martial artists, 3. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
You can read this book for philosophy or for content. Cleary filters out the content and leaves the philosophy. Nihon Services tells you what an old swordsman was saying to a student. If you study Japanese martial arts, you'll want to read the Nihon Services translation.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Genius uncovered?, 10. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
A great work, not much to comment on realy, im not sure how a review of this book in less than 1000 words could do it justice, by far. if you like it try reading Eiji yoshikawas fictional about the life of musashi miyamoto.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A feast for thought..., 25. Dezember 1997
A very deep little book, declared by many to be The classic guide to strategy. I first read it years ago, and still, to this day, I have moments of understanding of it.

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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good book., 1. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I read it after I heard a song called "Sun and Steel" that was based on the story and I liked it. It was kind of short, however.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very Misunderstood book, 3. Februar 2000
Von 
Wow, what a misunderstood book. A business book that's deliberately written to be obscure, with deep hidden meaning. Hmmmm. The way I see it, it can be applied to business, since Musashi said his way of strategy is about winning at all things, but obscure no. Musashi himself (if you care to read the book thoroughly) actually decried the other schools of martial arts around in his day that told about secrets of martial arts. Secret teachings, eh? Sounds just like the present day doesn't it? He said their were no secrets, just practise (the way is in training). The primary theme to the book is that you must focus on the end result you want, and take steps to achieve that. for example in a sword fight, the desired end result is to kill your opponent, every move you make should be intended to accomplish that. Everyting in the book is so straight forward I can't understand anyone not being able to comprehend it, but that's life.

(REAL NAME)   
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 only one or two (not even memorable). For the philosophically inclined, I highly Recomend Takuan's "Unfettered Mind" -- it's three letters from a Zen master to a Sword Master. If you are interested in Zen aspects of the princiapals and techniques of sword fighting this is for you. I have only read the first letter and am eager to read the other two. This is one you will want to re-read. As for my Book of Five Rings, I gave it to an friend in case he may find something in it I did not. I am studying Kendo (Japanese fencing) and will start Iado (the Samurai art of drawing the sword and killing your opponent in one move)and have been practicing Zazen (Zen meiditation)... so I think I know a good book about Zen and the way of the sword a little more than your average layman. Trust me on this one.
