Love the series but virtually nothing significant happens in this book. The author is just throwing out the last few books short on time with less relevant storyline. Still a great series but feels like we are being nickel and dimmed for actual storyline lately.

For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events.

An implacable foe with telepathic cohesion in battle, near immortality, and eons-advanced engineering skills threatens to wipe humanity from the galaxy. What's more, they've overcome their one weakness - no faster-than-light travel - and have followed humanity through our star gates and beyond. But humans are the master of adaption and have got a counterpunch of devastating proportions in reserve.

Setting down his thoughts on swordplay, on winning, and on spirituality, legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi intended this modest work as a guide for his immediate disciples and future generations of samurai. He had little idea he was penning a masterpiece that would be eagerly devoured by people in all walks of life centuries after his death.

Heard about book on Joe Rogan podcast. thought it would have more general teachings on warfare etc but that is not what I found. If your single focus is a vague martial arts theory book than this is for you.

I really enjoyed this part of the story arc. Smooth story where the last couple seemed like a lot of filler. I'm normally not into Samurai type Asian warrior storyline but this was an interesting angle that went well with the overall storyline. Cant wait for the next one.
