Publisher's Summary

The comprehensive and accurate edition of the Hagakure is a must-have for serious martial artists or fans of samurai and the Bushido code.   

The Hagakure is one of the most influential of all Japanese texts - written nearly 300 years ago by Yamamoto Tsunetomo to summarize the very essence of the Japanese Samurai Bushido ("warrior") spirit. Its influence has been felt throughout the world, and yet its existence is scarcely known to many Westerners. This is the first translation to include the complete first two books of the Hagakure and the most reliable and authentic passages contained within the third book; all other English translations published previously have been extremely fragmentary and incomplete.

Every sentence is a gem

I really enjoyed listening to this book.
All of the reviews made it sound quite harrowing in a violent way. There’s a lot of common sense within the he text which can be applied to every day situations we may find ourselves in now

Well rounded, easy listening.

A very clear indication of the values of old Samurai. The word annunciation cleared up a lot of things for me in terms of reading and fully understanding what the author was conveying. A great rendition of a timeless work.
