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." — blog

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

Thrushbreeze padded to the Thunderclan border. She crouched in some bramble, right on her side of the border. She was waiting for someone. <br> <p> She heard a twig snap, and a couple leaves rustle. After a pause another twig cracked. That was her and her friend Ivypool's secret greeting, so she came out in the open. "Ivypool?" She whispered. <br> <p> "Right here." Ivypool leapt over the stream so she was in Shadowclan's territory. She could tell right away that her brown furred friend was in he<_>at. "You, uh, in The Mood?" <br> <p> Thrushbreeze nodded. "Your nose is as strong as ever." <br> <p> Ivypool hesitated before asking, "May l help you out?" <br> <p> Thrushbreeze nodded eagerly before rolling on her back. "Please. Eat me out!" Ivypool crouched over the soaking cu<_>nt. She probed her nose around, enjoying the warm moisture on her face. Tentively, she flicked her tongue out, causing Thrushbreeze to moan. She probed around with it, getting a feel for this sl<_>it. She lapped at the wave of wet, drinking the delicious, creamy substance. She put her mouth around the outside of her friend's pu<_>ssy, and began sucking the juices up. Thrushbreeze bucked her hips in pleasure, groaning. Ivyleaf grabbed a stick and gently pried it through the other cat's pu<_>ssy lips. Thrushbreeze gasped, never having anything get that far inside of her like that. Ivyleaf held the stick in her teeth and slid it back and forth, in and almost out of the soaked pu<_>ssy. Thrushbreeze reached or<_>gasm, white cu<_>m spurting out. She purred and looked at lvyleaf. "Your turn." Ivyleaf nodded. A dark shadow loomed over them. "Not if l have anything to say out it," the unmistakeable voice of Rowanstar growled. "Come on. Both of you." He led the way to the Shadowclan camp, two warriors flanking Thrushbreeze and lvypool. <br> <p> [Thought l'd write one! Background, Thrushbreeze is the young friend of Ivyleaf, who's obviously a little older.] <br> <p> -JJ
