Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Samurai Wisdom is absolutely excellent. Not only does this book provide the reader with a deep understanding of the samurai mind and their values, but if studied and applied, it also provides the reader with many valuable principles to live by in today's world. This is one of Thomas Cleary's best books." —Bodhi Sanders, author of Warrior Wisdom: The Warrior's Path

"[A] refreshing look at the life of the samurai, his history, his way of thinking, the reason & benefits for living the way they did & a deep insight into their minds." —Terry Tozer, Traditional Japanese Shotokan Karate Academy (TJSKA)

"These books provide a fascinating glimpse into the psyche of Edo period samurai and their struggles to retain the skills of war while remaining relevant in a time of peace, and they're also very affordable." —TheShogunsHouse.com blog

"...presents modern versions of five texts on the traditional Japanese martial ways." —Black Belt magazine
