The book of five rings by Musashi Miyamoto( Recording )

30 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. He had little idea he was penning a masterpiece that would be eagerly devoured by people in all walks of life centuries after his death. Along with The Art of War by Sun Tzu, The Book of Five Rings has long been regarded as an invaluable treatise on the strategy of winning. Musashi's timeless advice on defeating an adversary, throwing an opponent off-guard, creating confusion, and other techniques for overpowering an assailant was addressed to the readers of earlier times on the battlefield and now serves the modern reader in the battle of life. In this new rendering by the translator of Hagakure and The Unfettered Mind, William Scott Wilson adheres rigorously to the seventeenth-century Japanese text and clarifies points of ambiguity in earlier translations. In addition, he offers an extensive introduction and a translation of Musashi's rarely published The Way of Walking Alone
El libro de los cinco anillos by Musashi Miyamoto( )

31 editions published between 1987 and 2018 in Spanish and English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Miyamoto Musashi fue el ronin, samurái libre, más famoso de toda la historia de Japón y su libro, fechado en 1643, es uno de los textos más importantes sobre lucha y estrategia nunca escritos, además de ser la obra clásica del bushido--literalmente La vía de los Nobles Armados. Son varlores del honor y la conducta impecable que conviven con el bushido, los que justifican que El libro de los cinco anillos, aunque escrito para hombres de armas, sea además una expresión magistral de todos los factores éticos y psicológicos que rodean cualquier proceso de lucha y competencia. Perseverencia, intuición, comprensión de uno mismo y del entorno, serenidad, incluso en medio del caos, acción rápida, pero no precipitada, saber esperar... Son algunas de las enseñanzas que despiertan hoy la fundada atracción en el mundo de los negocios y la gestión y son, pues, elementos clave para explicar el interés que el liderazgo japonés tiene en el ámbito empresarial de Occidente" -- Page [4] of cover

The five rings : Musashi Miyamoto's art of strategy by Musashi Miyamoto( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new title in the Art of Wisdom series is a luxuriously illustrated edition of the ultimate Japanese warrior classic. Written by the legendary swordsman Musashi Miyamoto, The Five Rings (c.1645) is more than just a manual on sword-fighting techniques: its Zen philosophy offers tactics and strategies as relevant to personal success today as they were to 17th-century samurai. The Five Rings speaks to every age about the essential roles of harmony and self-mastery in our lives. In addition to The Five Rings, this beautiful volume includes two additional short texts by Miyamoto: The Art of Swordsmanship and The Way of Self-Reliance."--Publisher description
