Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Miyamoto Musais fue el ronin -samurai libre- mas famoso de toda la historia de Japon y su libro, fechado en 1643, es uno de los textos mas importantes sobre lucha y estrategia nunca escritos, ademas de ser la obra clasica del bushido, literalmente La via de los nobles armados. Son valores del honor y la conducta impecable que conviven con el bushido, los que justifican que el Libro de los cinco anillos, aunque escrito para hombres de armas, sea demas una expresion magistral de todos los factores eticos y psicologicos que rodean cualquier proceso de lucha y competencia. Perseverancia, intuicion, comprension de uno mismo y del entorno, serenidad incluso en medio del caos, accion rapida pero no precipitada, saber esperar, son algunas de las ensenanzas que despiertan hoy una fundada atraccion en el mundo de los negocios y la gestion y son, pues, elementos claves para explicar el interes que el liderazgo japones tiene en el ambito empresarial de Occidente. / The Book of Five Rings is one of the most insightful texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory to emerge from Asian culture. Written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life, the book analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction.The Book of Five Rings was composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi. Thomas Cleary's translation is immediately accessible, with an introduction that presents the spiritual background of the warrior tradition. Along with Musashi's text, Cleary translates here another important Japanese classic on leadership and strategy, The Book of Family Traditions on the Art of War by Yagyu Munenori, which highlights the ethical and spiritual insights of Taoism and Zen as they apply to the way of the warrior.
