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.

Musashi's words are great but the translation is not so good. There are misinterpretations of the meaning of the text because it is not translated from any experience with Japanese swordsmanship and the special technical vocabulary of swordsmanship. Plus the author includes part of Yagyu Munenori's (another master swordsman) text in it. It is not focused but rather confused. It includes both to make the book more marketable. There are better and more accurate translations out there.

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!

Well, this is one of the greatest books ever written on strategy. But a great deal of it is highly technical and not easily understood by people without extensive background in the Japanese martial arts - I lived in Japan for 3 years, have studied over 10 year and make no claims to understand it. I used to ask my Sensei about it and he would just laugh - it was deliberately written to be obscure. I think you ought read it, enjoy it, know that most business managers (Japan or America) do not understand it and all the hype about it as a business text is BS.

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

I've read several books on sword techniques, methods, philosophies, etc... This book takes all that knowledge and adds an edge to it I haven't found anywhere else. It makes you think about your movements, and style of fighting... and answers the questions on things like why the samurai used a long and short sword instead of two long blades.
Musashi fought back when it meant living or dying, and never lost. He wrote the book years after he retired from fighting and tried to capture the very essense of how to win in any situation. This book does not have any pictures of techniques, but it makes you evaluate every technique.
It offers a great deal of knowledge for every day life and even if you never pick up a sword or raise your fists, this book can teach you how to win in life's battles by way of your mind. A great book, and I feel lucky to have it on my shelf... available when I need it.

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!

Very good description of basics and practices in a concise way. I stumbled upon a fact that some of the described techniques
can be used in real life, not only in martial arts. Definitely recommending to anyone who wants to get insight to martial arts and a different way of life.

This is one of many books that people just don't understand. This book teaches a person the Way. As defined by Musashi, the way is the divine footprints of God, telling us how to live our lives to correct way. That is what the Way is, and that is what Musashi spent 50 yrs. trying to find. In this book, he imparts all his knowledge of the Way. He also tells how to fight using his style. He tells how to come out the victor in a sword fight no matter what techhnique the enemy uses. At age 30, Musashi was invincible. He had never lost one out of 60 battles using just about all the available weapons of the time. This book in short, teaches you how to live the Way, as God would like to see, how to relieze everything going on around you, and how to become the greatest swordsman.

For serious students of Japanese swordsmanship, Victor Harris' translation is best. Captures the essence of the meaning of technical concepts best.
