Brief Summary

Miyamoto Musashi’s five “books” formulate his view of strategy, using the medium of 17th-century Kenjutsu, or Japanese sword fighting, as his lens. The book itself is insightful, but I fear that some over-extrapolate its use cases to modern business, which was most likely neither the author’s intention nor an accurate application of its teachings.
