Eiji Yoshikawa's autobiography was touching and insightful. Gives one an insight into how he came up with his characters to his famous book series, Musashi. I just wish he had a happier and longer life.

An excellent piece of work by Eiji Yoshikawa. If you have read "Taiko" or "Musashi" then you trust that this book will certainly not disapoint. It is a bit hard to get since it is no longer in print, but I've ordered it through Amazon used, in excellent condition, I can only recommend if you're interested in Japan, it's culture, and it's history.
