Book Review: The Book of the Samurai-Hagakure

Yamamoto Tsunetomo – translated by William Scott Wilson. Kodunsha International, 1979

The author Yamamoto Tsunetomo was a samurai who never engaged in warfare. The book was completed by a younger samurai over a 7 year period. William Wilson the translator has done an excellent job with this Japanese classic. This book takes us to another time in another place with Zen enlightenment.
