The Book of Five Rings is a famous text written by the swordsman Miyamoto Musashi in 1645, concerning Martial Arts, in particular Kenjitsu and the art of Zen.

Miyamoto Musashi uses language that is as sharp and decisive as his sword - delivering in unfaltering steps the most direct path towards the objective - to cut down your opponent and emerge unscathed and victorious.

As with many books of this ilk - like "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu or Machiavelli - the precepts are largely applicable to every form of human competition, and have been widely transferred into the worlds of business and sport in the modern era.

This book has been specially created for the iPad and contains beautiful color illustrations and an interactive table of contents.
