  • Description or summary of the book: The Complete Book of Five Rings is an authoritative version of Musashi's classic The Book of Five Rings, translated and annotated by a modern martial arts master, Kenji Tokitsu. Tokitsu has spent most of his life researching the legendary samurai swordsman and his works, and in this book he illuminates this seminal text, along with several other works by Musashi. These include 'The Mirror of the Way of Strategy,' which Musashi wrote when he was in his twenties; 'Thirty-five Instructions on Strategy,' and 'Forty-two Instructions on Strategy,' which were precursors to The Book of Five Rings; and 'The Way to Be Followed Alone,' which Musashi wrote just days before his death. Read together, these five texts give readers an unusually detailed, nuanced view of Musashi's ideas on swordsmanship, strategy, and self-cultivation. Tokitsu puts all these writings into historical and philosophical context and makes them accessible and relevant to today's readers and martial arts students. Tokitsu understands Musashi's writings-and Musashi as a martial artist-unusually well and is able to provide a rare insight into the man and his historical contribution.
