Product description

"The Shogun's Scroll" offers a look at the samurai ethic of Japan distilled into language modern readers can relate to and follow. In the tradition of "The Art of War" and "The Book of Five Rings," this book offers timeless advice on success in war and life. Written in the voice of Hidetomo Nakadai, a late twelfth century scholar and servant in the court of Minamoto Yoritomo--the first shogun of Japan and one of the world's most ruthless generals--this treatise can be used as a guide for personal growth and motivation. Perfect for those interested in martial arts, samurai, military history or Japanese history.
