Overview

Miyamoto Musashi's Go Rin no Sho or the book of five rings, is considered a classic treatise on military strategy, much like Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Chanakya's Arthashastra.

The five "books" refer to the idea that there are different elements of battle, just as there are different physical elements in life, as described by Buddhism, Shinto, and other Eastern religions. Through the book Musashi defends his thesis: a man who conquers himself is ready to take it on on the world, should need arise.

Meet the Author

Miyamoto Musashi (c.1584–June 13 (Japanese calendar: May 19),
1645), also known as Shinmen Takezō, Miyamoto Bennosuke, or by his
Buddhist name Niten Dōraku was a famous Japanese samurai, and is
considered by many to have been one of the most skilled swordsmen
in history. Musashi, as he is often simply known, became legendary
through his outstanding swordsmanship in numerous duels, even from
a very young age. He is the founder of the Hyōhō Niten Ichi-ryū or
Niten-ryū style of swordsmanship and the author of The Book of Five
Rings, a book on strategy, tactics, and philosophy that is still
studied today.
