In 17th century Japan, there was a samurai so skilled that myths started to grow about him while he was still alive. After his death, he became a legend of supernatural skills with the sword. His name was Miyamoto Musashi, and he is known to have gone undefeated after more than 60 duels. Interestingly, not only was Musashi a master swordsman, he was also a poet, an artist, and a philosopher.

The book is divided into five chapters based on the five elements of Japanese Buddhism: earth, water, fire, wind, and emptiness.
