There is perhaps no more potent symbol of the samurai era than the sword. By the seventeenth century in Japan, the art of swordsmanship had begun to take on an almost cult-like popularity. Swordsmanship was more than a mastery of technique; it was a path toward self-mastery. The Swordsman’s Handbook is the definitive collection of writings by men who saw the study of swordsmanship not only as essential to life and death, but as something that transcended life and death as well. Their teaching, that dealing with conflict is an art that requires grace and courage, speaks to us today with surprising immediacy and relevance. Included in this collection are writings by Kotada Yahei Toshitada, Takuan Soho, Yagyu Munenori, Miyamoto Musashi, Matsura Seizan, Issai Chozanshi, and Yamaoka Tesshu.

Die Dreamworks-Verfilmung des ersten Buches "Happy Smekday"ist seit März 2015 unter dem Titel "Home" in die Kinos. In der Fortsetzung von Happy Smekday möchte der Boov J. Lo New Boovworld besuchen, die sich jedoch auf einem der Mondes des Planeten Saturn befindet. Jedoch wird er dort immer noch strafrechtlich gesucht, war er doch in Buch 1 dafür verantwortlich, dass die Gorg zur Erde gefunden haben. J. Lo wünschte sich mittlerweile, er könnte in die Vergangenheit reisen und sich selbst daran hindern, das Signal versehentlich an die Gorg auszusenden. Allerdings ist für die 13-jährige Gratuity klar, dass, wenn die Gorg nie zur Erde gekommen und wieder in die Flucht geschlagen worden wären, die Boov nie beschlossen hätten, die Erde auch wieder zu verlassen. Doch sie lässt J.Lo seinen Wunschtraum, da sie glaubt, dass er eh nie in Erfüllung gehen wird.

True Path of the Ninja is the first authoritative translation in English of the Shoninki—the famous 17th century ninjutsu manual. Authors Antony Cummins and Yoshie Minami worked closely with Dr. Nakashima Atsumi, author of the most comprehensive modern Japanese version of the Shoninki, thus making this English translation the closest to the original scrolls. The information and insights found in this translation are invaluable for understanding the skills, techniques and mentality of the historical shinobi. Whether it involved tips for surviving in the wild, advice on intelligence-gathering techniques, or methods for creating chaos in the enemy camp, this ninja book unveils secrets long lost. Along with its practical applications, this book is an important guide to the mental discipline that ninjas must have to ensure success in accomplishing their mission. True Path of the Ninja covers the following topics: What a ninja is and what equipment he needs The skills of infiltration and information gathering How to distrupt and distract the enemy How to be mentally prepared to carry out ninja missions In addition to the translation of the Shoninki, this book also includes the first written record of the oral tradition "Defense Against a Ninja" taught by Otake Risuke, the revered sensei of the legendary Katori Shinto Ryu school of swordsmanship. Sensei reveals for the first time these ancient and traditional teachings on how the samurai can protect himself from the cunning wiles of a ninja. About this new edition: This second edition contains a new introduction by the translator, and has been thoroughly updated to reflect developments that shed new light on the original Japanese text.
