Publisher's Summary

The legends of samurai continue to captivate us. We wonder if the stories we see depicted in pop culture creations, books, and museums are full of truth or enhanced to make a point.

You are going to experience the fantastic world of the samurai, and learn the code, or Bushido, that these men followed to live up to honor and loyalty for their masters as a way of protecting Japan.

The samurai were highly skilled warriors, fighting for various reasons, even establishing the feudal era known as Edo, with a social caste system that put them on the top. The samurai ruled Japan for several years, fought wars, and eventually became obsolete.

But their traditions and codes are not gone from history. They live on today. Everyone can learn a little something from the samurai, including how to live a better life. Honoring people, staying loyal, and defending others when it is right are all virtues of the samurai that can be continued today.

You are going to learn of the eight virtues, the history of the Samurai, some of the most famous warriors, and then you will discover how you can apply their lifestyle to the modern world. Wouldn’t it be nice if people returned to a more chivalrous nature where lying and devious acts are not acceptable and where being honest, sincere, and courageous are looked upon with reverence?

Discover how you can uphold the traditions of highly skilled warriors and live a decent and kind life as described by Bushido writer Inazo Nitobe, even if you are just a regular person. 

What are you waiting for? Buy and listen and learn about Bushido now!

This is such an awesome book !!!

This is such an awesome book.Bushido isn't a science and it is difficult to get it. It is comprised of numerous parts, each intended to deliberately adjust each other. Equity, Courage and Loyalty are only a portion of the fixings should have been included only the correct sums. An excess of can be as terrible as too little. A man stressed simply over Justice may disregard Benevolence and a man stressed over Honor may disregard Politeness.I extremely very prescribed it to all...

Great

This book contains a lot of wisdom. Makes you see life and what you're doing in life from a different. very strategic and wise perspective. Content by Sun Tzu is quite fascinating, but commentary of commentators is so overwhelmingly difficult in vocabulary as if the difficult vocabulary of the translations was not hard enough.

Reading this book,

Reading this book, i found it very compelling and an instant page-turner. Ιt is an accumulation of all the wisdom the Eastern philosophy can provide on military matters. Althought it was written centuries go it can provide valuable insight not only on military decisions but also on personal matters and everyday life

A fascinating read

A fascinating read, truly a work of incredible insight and at times a reminder to keep it simple and use a little common sense. It's understandable why business employ the tenets albeit with a view to manoeuvring the competitor into a weaker business position. The information within has many useful (and thankfully peaceful) applications.

That is a fantastic book!!!

It is short and straight to the point, nothing else needed. Sun Tze's view apply for many parts in our live: work and social live. To me, it also applies on my own skill in fighting. As a martial artist, these things are very important to know and they help become better.

This book is written unemotionally !!!

This book is written unemotionally by Lord Liverpool. It gives the facts. The terrible facts of how the Japanese conducted themselves in Nanking and in the second World War. Their culture which decreed their Emperor a living god, also decreed that surrender was not an option and they therefore had no respect or regard for their fellow human being; the Americans, the Australians, the British armed forces and the Chinese who did surrender.

Excellent introduction to the Age of the Samurai

Along with the general background history, there are some excellent descriptions of the important players and the events they took part in. The text mostly summarises events with the , occasional zoom into detail to better illustrate the nature of the conflicts and those taking part.
