The ancient text from which this book is drawn is a hidden work that came to light during the author's research into The Art of War and The Book of Five Rings. The Shogun's Scrolls were written in the twelfth century by Hidetomo Nakadai, a scholar and servant in the court of Minamoto Yoritomo, the first shogun of Japan. Soon after his victories over rival clans, the shogun ordered Nakadai to provide detailed advice on governing the realm. The resulting treatise can be used today as a guide for personal development and motivation, especially for followers of the martial arts.
