    Default Kenji Tokitsus Book "Miyamoto Musashi-His Life and Writings"

    Hi All!
    Today i recieved a copy of Kenji Tokitsus book on Musashi Miyamoto. Just strated reading but my first impression is very good. Are there any critical opinions about this book here in the forum?
    Anyone here who ownes the original french version? The french versions glossary has als entries in kanji. The english version dont has Kanji.

    I thought it was very good. I like that he doesn't just tell you his version of history. He evaluates various theories and then offers his opinion on which one he feels is the most accurate and why.

    But Gorin no Sho was not written in kanji. It was written to be ambiguous so we can all read it time and time again to form our own opinions. The translation of this is his interpretation.

    I made a few other points here.
