Setting down his thoughts on swordplay, on winning, and on spirituality, legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi intended this modest work as a guide for his immediate disciples and future generations of samurai.

Abstraction before technicality. Very cool. ( )

Thoroughly enjoyable historical texts that represent the Taoist perspectives of the samurai warriors of the 17th century. ( )

Një nga tekstet më të sakta të kulturës aziatike, për artin e sofistikuar të betejës dhe triumfit.

A short, functional book, Miyamoto Musashi's The Book of Five Rings offers some rather basic philosophical tenets – know yourself, be calm, live in harmony with things, etc. – alongside extensive and specific instructions on various weapons and fighting stances and so on. The latter is, of course, less useful to a modern reader, and the former is elevated in many readers' eyes by its context. I believe ancient instruction manuals like this are elevated by some to the level of philosophy, when in truth they are nowhere near, simply because people like the aesthetic of learning from a samurai and following a 'warrior's path' or somesuch.

My Shambhala edition, translated by Thomas Cleary, also included a second short manual, The Book of Family Traditions on the Art of War by Yagyū Munenori, which is more of the same. It was a little bit more lively in its writing style, but in truth both books are a bit turgid. Ultimately, these books are shallow pools whereas real works of philosophy can be like great brawling oceans when you read them. The Book of Five Rings does have one profound line about expanding your knowledge beyond your own discipline, because "if you have wide knowledge of the ways, you encounter them in everything" (pg. 18). I only wish the books themselves had done more to show us. ( )

Another book that's sat on my Kindle for years unread. But having just finished David Kirks' books it really felt like the right time to read this.

It's hard to judge this book in any real contemporary terms because it simply has no place in the contemporary world. It's an anachronism from a time and place that is no more and will never be again.

It is aimed solely at the samurai warrior, but maybe there are those who are ultra competitive who do contact sports, and also military personnel, that could still gain a lot from reading it - which doesn't apply to me.

It is, however, an incredible view into the mind of one of the greatest strategists (swordsmen) from Japanese history, and it really gives you the genuine thoughts and attitude of a Samurai in regards to fighting and killing with swords. It's probably the most amoral thing i've ever read, and in that aspect alone it's quite wonderful because it is so genuine. ( )

Knjiga koja na engleskom nosi ispravan naziv „Knjiga pet sfera“, delo Mijamota Musašija posvećeno umeću ratovanja, predstavlja čisto pragmatični poduhvat. Musaši ismeva spoljašnji sjaj i komercijalizaciju borilačkih veština, usmeravajući pažnju na psihološki i fizički aspekt smrtonosnog napada i odlučne pobede kao suštine ratovanja.

Njegov naučno agresivan, u potpunosti nemilosrdan pristup vojnoj nauci, iako nije bio široko zastupljen među japanskim majstorima borilačkih veština, predstavlja jednu visoko koncentrovanu karakterizaciju određenog tipa ratnika samuraja. Iako se u vezi njegovih dramatičnih podviga razvio čitav korpus legendi, malo se toga pouzdano zna o životu Mijamota Musašija. Ono što je on izneo o sebi u svojoj „Knjizi pet prstenova“ je primarni izvor istorijskih činjenica. Prvi put je u borbi ubio čoveka sa trinaest godina, a poslednji put sa dvadeset i devet godina. U jednom trenutku svog života on je navodno prestao da koristi pravi mač, ali je nastavio da zadaje smrtonosne udarce protivnicima sve do kraja karijere mačevaoca. Poslednje tri decenije života Musaši je proveo usavršavajući i podučavajući svoju ratničku nauku. Priča se da se nikada nije češljao, da se nikada nije kupao, da se nije ženio, da nije stvorio dom i da nije podizao decu. Iako je poznavao društvene veštine svog vremena i uistinu ih je preporučivao svakome, Mijamoto Musaši je u suštini išao asketskim putem ratnika do kraja svog života.

Ovo izdanje sadrži u sebi još jednu proslavljenu knjigu, Knjigu porodičnih predanja o umeću ratovanja, Jagju Munenorija, čuvenog samuraja koji se u poznim godinama posvetio zen budizmu. Otuda ova knjiga predstavlja spoj zena i borilačkih veština.
