Miyamoto Musashi (宮本 武蔵?, c. 1584 – June 13, 1645), also known as Shinmen Takezō, Miyamoto Bennosuke or, by his Buddhist name, Niten Dōraku, was an expert Japanese swordsman and rōnin. Musashi, as he was often simply known, became renowned through stories of his excellent, and unique double bladed swordsmanship and undefeated record in his 60 duels. He was the founder of the Hyōhō Niten Ichi-ryū or Niten-ryū style of swordsmanship and in his final years authored the The Book of Five Rings (五輪の書 Go Rin No Sho), a book on strategy, tactics, and philosophy that is still studied today.

3.0 out of 5 stars The very short book of five rings!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 May 2021
Hmm! More of a pamphlet than a book at a mere 47 pages, I haven't actually read any of it yet, so will update when I have read it.
I can't help but notice the rather striking resemblance between the Samurai on the cover and a very well known bounty hunter character from Star Wars, just check out the helmet, breastplate and vambrace!
Pages are a nice, normal texture and the typeface is easy to read.
