Although it was written more than three centuries ago as a treatise on strategy and combat, Miyamoto Musashi's The Book of Five Rings is heralded today as a classic work that speaks with equal power to the modern businessperson, philosopher, and practitioner of the martial arts. In A Way to Victory, Hidy Ochiai-a legend in the martial arts world who has devoted much of his life to the teachings of Musashi-provides both a new translation of The Book of Five Rings and annotations that clarify the text's lessons in strategy for the contemporary reader. Ochiai's translation represents an unparalleled achievement in not only rendering the wisdom and spirit of Musashi's timeless teachings for a modern readership but also in maintaining the completeness and precision of the original.
