    A Sensible if Simplified Take on the Samurai Mindset

    Author Bill Diffenderffer clearly and usefully applies the ideas and practices of Japanese Samurai warriors, and, more generally, of Zen Buddhism, to business. Some readers may be skeptical about mixing business with religion - especially with a religion that is unfamiliar to many Western readers. However, we recommend this book to managers who want to sharpen their focus. Diffenderffer makes a convincing case that the Samurai mindset, conduct and ethical code can transform both your business practices and the practices of those around you. He alternates tales about Samurai principles with examples of contemporary managers who act upon them. The result is a very readable book - but that's actually one of its weaknesses. As Diffenderffer applies ¿ and popularizes - Zen and warrior concepts, he moves away from some of their more complex, but nevertheless valuable, elements and risks diluting their meaning. Still, you'll find plenty left to ponder.

    Great for business owners !

    I am a small business owner who loves this book. Its great! I've always been curious about Samurai and the 'code', but never in relation to business. Its very inspiring and informative how the author draws you in to the ideas that are usually missing from business books. I am sharing this with my employees to encourage a more agressive yet integrity filled atmosphere in my office. I highly recommend!
