    Great way to read great books on the go. Love Sci Fi especially Orson Scott Card and Star Wars.

    "You Must Think on This"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was not as pleased with this book as I had inticipated. The platitudes are very brief and in an audio format it would take severl listens in avery controlled setting to see benefit from its contents.


    What was most disappointing about Miyamoto Musashi’s story?

    Personaly, that I do not have the time or focus to be a master of the sword as I can not devote the time he suggests.


    What aspect of Alec Sand’s performance would you have changed?

    His performance was decent, but a little dry.


    Was A Book of Five Rings worth the listening time?

    It was good to have listened so that I know what its' contents are.


    Any additional comments?

    I would probably prefer to get this book in printed format.
