    This is legendary 17th century swordsman Miyamoto Musashi’s exposition of sword fighting, strategy, and Zen philosophy. Required listening for any martial artist, business person, or student of strategy, this audiobook includes the one hour Zen inspired soundtrack, The Mysterious Sound of Wind in the Bamboo, performed on authentic Japanese instruments.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator's style.


    What didn’t you like about Jim Donaldson’s performance?

    He performs with a stereotypical Japanese accent and cadence, despite not being Japanese. It was distracting.


    Any additional comments?

    A great piece of literature hindered by distracting narration.
