'The Book of Five Rings' was written by Miyamoto Musashi, an undefeated swordmaster living in 17th century Japan.
Miyamoto Musashi wrote 'The Book of Five Rings' as a guide to successful swordplay, strategic planning, self-realization and deep spiritualization. His goal was to teach and inspire future generations of samurais, but little did he know, he would be teaching and inspiring various individuals and groups not just across Japan, but across the entire globe.
The skills and knowledge Musashi had acquired during his long career as a swordmaster were poured into his work, and 450 years later the wisdom he shared about self-empowerment and success is just as relevant as it was centuries ago. This has lead to 'The Book of Five Rings' becoming one of the best selling business books of all time.
The principles found in 'The Book of Five Rings' are interpreted metaphorically in this day and age, benefiting everyone from business men to politicians, corporate ladder climbers to army generals.
Now, 'The Book of Five Rings' has been amended for the 21st century. SmarterComics has released a comic book version of Musashi's masterpiece. Featuring 80 pages of fully illustrated summarizations of the original book, readers can enjoy how SmarterComics takes the self-empowering principles imparted by Musashi and apply them to modern day situations.
