  • Wonderful enlightening work of philosophy and history

    This has to be one of the best books I have read. Never in my life have I read the work of an author whose words could so echo my own beliefs. Though many western people will probably not enjoy some of the concepts they would deem outlandish, I find them truer to my heart than any religion or philosophy I have ever heard mention of. Inazo Nitobe, bushido may be lost as a national conscience, but the Yamamoto Spirit still lives within some of us.
