Editorial Reviews



[T]his is one of those rare books on the martial arts that really deserves the title "Must-read". Not only does it shed much-needed light on the facts of Musashi's life, but it brings us that much closer to getting a picture of the man behind the myth...it almost feels as if a new book of the Bible were only now being translated from the ancient Greek and published in 2010.  Jeff Broderick -- Kendo World, January 2011

A brilliant book, brilliantly translated and annotated (meaning explained rather than pictures!) and a must for the bookshelf of every Japanese swordsman and Musashi enthusiast. I unreservedly recommend this book. Dr. A. Sahal --Amazon UK

This book is a valuable addition to the field. If you want to know where all those stories of Musashi came from, this is one of the primary sources, and as such, should be on the reading list for all serious Musashi afficianados. Christopher Hellman author of The Samurai Mind -- Ichijoji April 2013

From the Back Cover

"Following the author's groundbreaking translations of the Bushū denraiki and the Bukōden, another richly annotated rendition of seminal texts, till now available only in Japanese."
