The Book of Five Rings

SmarterComics are about the main message of a book. That’s why we carefully summarize the original book before preparing the images.

When Miyamoto Musashi first penned The Book of Five Rings, his intentions were to pass down the skills and knowledge he had acquired through years of battle. He wrote this strategic guide not just about fighting literal battles, but about spiritual ones as well. In hopes of influencing future generations of samurai's, Musashi wrote what was to become one of the must read business books of all time.

Although samurai's and businessmen seemingly have very little in common, they both benefit from the wisdom passed down from Musashi. Although the book was written as a literal war guide, it has been interpreted to benefit people from all walks of life.

SmarterComics has taken Musashi's masterpiece and turned it into an 80 page, fully illustrated comic book. They have highlighted the main principles found in the original book, and created a fun, easy-to-read version that appeals to scores of readers for many different reasons.

"SmarterComics are about the main message of a book. That’s why we carefully summarize the original book before preparing the images. Illustrating a summary means convenience for our readers. If we illustrated the original text, a 300-page book would result in 2,000 comic pages, which would become very overwhelming. By focusing on the main message, we can create comics that leave readers with a lasting impression," said Frank Arda, CEO of SmarterComics (

This innovative approach to storytelling helps to reach new generations of readers. Now, more than ever, people can learn and utilize the lessons found in 'The Book of Five Rings'. After reading the summarized versions by SmarterComics, readers will understand:

  •     How to generate highly organized, yet adaptable plans of action
  •     How to identify, and even create, weak spots in your opponent
  •     When and where to set your plan into action
  •     Why self-reflection is important and how spiritualization can keep you grounded and focused
