Miyamoto Musashi's The Book of Five Rings is well known book of strategy and has been used to understand contemporary Japanese business.

His interpretation of Musashi's classic is specifically for the martial artist as it was originally intended. The result is an enthralling treatise on martial strategy that combines a warrior's instinct with the philosophies of Buddhism, Shintoism, Confucianism, and Taoism

The lady of the rings : Musashi's book of five rings strategy interpreted for women by Steve Kaufman( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phenomenal success of the author's original interpretation of Musashi's Book of Five Rings was the inspiration that eventually led to the creation of this volume. A chance meeting of two incredibly diverse human beings led to a collaboration that came as a result of their own personal relationship. Hanshi Kaufman taught the principles of the "Rings" to Ann Davis, a successful restauranteur, over a period of time when she was dealing with issues that occur in every person seeking answers to the so-called difficulties in life. This book is a result of their chance meeting. It expresses in Ann's words her feelings towards life now based on Musashi's universal ideas that override any form of prejudice. It is an expose of a woman coming to terms with her own reality. Bright, witty, pithy, and personal, Ann Davis tells her story without making excuses for herself. Steve Kaufman captures her sensitivity as only a master teacher and writer can--P. [4] of cover
