Publisher's Summary

Who were the samurai, and how could a people dedicated to war and violence have such an impact on a culture known for its politeness, manners, and aesthetic beauty? The samurai warriors of ancient Japan lived by a moral and ethical code known as Bushido, "the way of the warrior". This code of chivalry sculpted a culture and influenced all aspects of their lives and society. After the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of March 2011, the world witnessed the characteristics of Bushido, including courage, integrity, benevolence, respect, honesty, honor, and loyalty.

This book presents these principles as a guide for navigating the challenges we all face, with examples of individuals who exemplify their meaning in today's world. Sharpen your sword, and let the journey begin!

Very inspiring and motivational!

I truly enjoyed listening to this book and found myself wishing that everybody knew the character traits exemplified in this book. These life strategies has inspired me to do my best, to always do the right thing, to be courageous and to have integrity at all times even in difficult situations. I feel this book should be recommended in schools reading programs as it promotes positive lifestyles and is very educational with historical events. The real life story's were touching and inspiring and made me more aware of Japanese culture and standards.

Inspirational, educational, and fun to read.

I liked the way how the author brings out the inner strength of people and their success stories through her personal life experiences. The main message of this book may seem simple but their impact in our lives is profound. I recommend this book to those who seeks better of themselves.
