Who were the samurai, and how could a people dedicated to war and violence have such an impact on a culture known for its politeness, manners, and aesthetic beauty? The samurai warriors of ancient Japan lived by a moral and ethical code known as Bushido, “the way of the warrior.” This code of chivalry sculpted a culture and influenced all aspects of their lives and society. After the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of March 2011, the world witnessed the characteristics of Bushido, including courage, integrity, benevolence, respect, honesty, honor, and loyalty.

This book presents these principles as a guide for navigating the challenges we all face with examples of individuals who exemplify their meaning in today’s world. Sharpen your sword, and let the journey begin!
