This review is from: The Lone Samurai: The Life of Miyamoto Musashi (Hardcover)
A very well-written book of one of the most famous people in history. Based on the historical data the stories are engaging and entertaining and there are some good lessons to learn too from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lone Samurai: The Life of Miyamoto Musashi, 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read this book so many times I had to buy a spare copy as my original is looking a little used.

Anyone interested in reading about Samurai should read this - the life, times and thinking behind one of Japan's most famous Samurai is fascinating.

As a practitioner of Shinkendo, including study of Two-Sword techniques - to gain more of an idea of the man behind the sword, this is a great start.

This review is from: The Lone Samurai: The Life of Miyamoto Musashi (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed the telling of Miyamoto Musashi's life I found it to be very interesting and the writer really drew me in. The only reason I have given this book 4 stars is because only half of the book was the biography and the other half didn't really interest me.

This review is from: The Lone Samurai: The Life of Miyamoto Musashi (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed reading this book; it's easily accessible and also well written. Miyamoto musashi was a inspirational character and a person that before i bought this book unfortunately had no idea ever existed.
