The Best Translation of The Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi


Miyamoto Musashi is counted among the greatest samurai to have ever lived. If you are interested in the Book of 5 Rings, chances are that you already know about his impressive life, his duels to the death, and his accomplishments as a warrior. There are two official editions of this book that are good, but one of them is quite old and has a couple of passages that have been cut out. The one we recommend you today is by Renner Publishing. We believe it's the best translation in English that we could find of the Book of Five Rings and it is totally complete.


A book for the modern warrior and a go-to option for a quick reading that transports us to feudal Japan, as we learn more about the concepts and ideas of Musashi.
