Miyamoto Musashi (宮本 武蔵, c. 1584 – June 13, 1645), was born Shinmen Takezō, then also went on to become called Miyamoto Bennosuke, and also by his Buddhist name Niten Dōraku. In the year 1644, he penned what is the one and the only primer that a man: preparing for the hot war of open and honest violence, the cold-hearted subterfuge of corporate warfare, the battlefield of modern-day social dynamics, or simply focusing on how to become a better man will ever need.
Collectively, there are several books that can accomplish the same goal, but they are loose branches strewn on the ground. Musashi offers us the entire tree, chopped, bundled, bathed in oil, and ready to be set alight.
