Ultimate Samurai, The: Miyamoto Mushashi
Japan's most famous samurai, Miyamoto Musashi (1584-1645), was an unmatched warrior whose innovative two-sword technique left him victorious in over 60 duels. Today, his philosophy lives on in The Book of Five Rings, his world-famous manual on battleground (and boardroom) strategy.
