When Musashi wrote 'The Book of Five Rings', his goal was to pass down the skills and knowledge he had gained firsthand while fighting more than 60 duels over the course of many years. What Musashi did not foresee, however, was the impact his book would have on people from all different walks of life spanning across the globe. 450 years later, 'The Book of Five Rings' has become one of the best selling business books of all time.
This knowledge imparted by Musashi has been reinterpreted over the years. Benefiting everyone from generals to businessmen, 'The Book of Five Rings' is full of lessons that are invaluable to anyone looking rise up among the ranks.
The book has been reinterpreted once again, but this time it has been turned into a comic-style book that is suitable for the modern age. SmarterComics has taken Musashi's principles for self-empowerment and applied them in a truly innovative way. SmarterComics created 80 pages of illustrated summarizations from the original book, designed to mirror modern day life.
