The other major area of discomfort I have with this book is that it is aimed at success in business and whilst Brian Klemmer does from time to time suggest you may aim at a different kind of success the majority of his prose talks of making money. He has a very materialistic outlook and whilst he advocates helping others, the main way he sees of doing this is by making your fortune so you have plenty to give away.
So I think you need to read this book with a critical eye and avoid buying into his underlying value system. Then you can take what is useful and inspiring from it. It is a book that may motivate you and give you a boost of confidence and energy to try out some changes in your life. The last chapter has practical exercises for bringing the qualities of a 'compassionate samurai' into your life ( eg. contribution and focus). These are useful although I think it would have been better if they had been integrated into the earlier chapters of the book as each quality was described.
Mr Klemmer's book takes numerous aspects of the "Way of the Samurai" and makes them ideas that you can apply and use in your life. This book can help you to stop living as a member of the 'herd' and start being a real and independent person with a strong and ethical code.
Mr Klemmer cleverly bridges the gap that people think exists between being a warrior and having compassion. In fact you are left with a very clear understanding that the two in fact go hand in hand-only the truly brave and heroic can have genuine compassion.
A great read and a life changing book! Grab a copy today!!
A great author and a phenomenal speaker is Mr Klemmer.
