あらすじ・解説

Setting down his thoughts on swordplay, on winning, and on spirituality, legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi intended this modest work as a guide for his immediate disciples and future generations of samurai. He had little idea he was penning a masterpiece that would be eagerly devoured by people in all walks of life centuries after his death.

Along with The Art of War by Sun Tzu, The Book of Five Rings has long been regarded as an invaluable treatise on the strategy of winning. Musashi's timeless advice on defeating an adversary, throwing an opponent off-guard, creating confusion, and other techniques for overpowering an assailant was addressed to readers of earlier times on the battlefield and now serves the modern listener in the battle of life.

In this new rendering by the translator of Hagakure and The Unfettered Mind, William Scott Wilson adheres rigorously to the 17th-century Japanese text and clarifies points of ambiguity in earlier translations. In addition, he offers an extensive introduction and a translation of Musashi's rarely published The Way of Walking Alone.

Great guide for a great mindset

Great work, it is quite short though. A lot of the information you will have to investigate thoroughly elsewhere. However, he does put you on the right course for a winning mind set. Really insight into the mind of a man who won over 60 life and death fights.

The way of all things.

If you could sum up The Book of Five Rings in three words, what would they be?

Exactly as hoped.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Book of Five Rings?

The introduction of the book by the original author, Musashi.

Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no idea

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I listened to it 5 times allready, I am sure I will do so again.

Any additional comments?

A marvelous book that I without a doubt will also buy in print. The performance of Scot Brick was excellent, clearly understandable and with good pronouncement, at least as far as I understand it (I do not speak japanese).

I loved the book read it many times and now very happy to have it on audio, although I like the voice of the one on YouTube better.

Great for disciplining the mind

Though I may not practice anything with a sword this translation of musashis' "book of five rings" helped sharpen my hand to hand skills and organized my dad to day life by learning such rhythms.

Would you listen to The Book of Five Rings again? Why?

Yes, anyone into martial arts or philosophy.

I wish I had read this book sooner

As Sun Ztu lays his teaching in step-by-step format, the lessons learned are to be taken as rigid laws of combat to be memorized. Contrarily, the Book of Five Rings was written to heighten ones state of mind and open it to overcoming broad obstacles with a personal philosophical understanding dubbed simply "The Way". The book is simple, and not so long that children would lose interest. The narrator did a good job in my personal opinion and held a time of general respect in his voice throughout the reading. I loved it and I'll make him read it to me again next week.

A great addition to my collection

Although this is only a couple hours long I can see myself listening to it many more times.

Ancient wisdom

This book undoubtedly contains deep ancient wisdom of approaches to combat and swordsmanship which can be difficult to follow at times, or to decipher what is being suggested. I came away thinking it would be far better to read the book in the traditional manner as I'm sure it would provide visual demonstrations of the concepts being discussed. One phrase I will undoubtedly take away from this book is "You should practice this thoroughly" as it is repeated to the extent of being a little irritating; to me at least.

Classic book for martial artists

If you could sum up The Book of Five Rings in three words, what would they be?

Budo, budo & budo

What did you like best about this story?

If you are not a martial artist or have little interest in the martial arts this is not for you. However, every martial artist will find a mind set and pattern that should be all to familiar to them. The authors instruction is simple but direct without any subtle backgrounds that you have to try and fathom. Whilst the exact details focus very specifically on Musashi's own sword style the message being put across is applicable to all martial arts....

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favourite?

There is only one character

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

N/A

Any additional comments?

The initial introduction is a little long and drawn out in my opinion and seems to last longer than the actual book itself. I personally enjoyed the narrators voice as it added to the age of the book putting it in context to the time of it's writing
