ive read a lot about the samurai, and this book gives them the best coverage and treatment ive ever seen. blomberg did a great job and you will learn a lot reading this. if you only read one book on the samurai, make it this one!

I am presently translating the book into Hungarian so have to go into every detail of it. I feel the choice of topic is quite good, at last a book which does not only focus on Zen Buddhism but also gives information about other important factors of the religious lives of the bushi. However, the author does not seem to have organised her work very well, repetitions, inconsistencies are a characteristic feature of the book. After all, I recommend it to devotees of the area but it is definitely not a Sunday afternoon reading.
