They also have The Art of the Samurai - Yamamoto Tsunetomo's Hagakure at the same price AKA the book that Forest Whittaker is reading from all the time in Ghost Dog :P

Both books are hardback with gold embossing and whatever the the fancy word is for being bound in fabric. There are beautiful photos, illustrations and annotations throughout the books that add some context and added interest to what are already very interesting reads.

If they're all sealed at the shop where you are, ask the assistant to open one for you so you can take a look, they'll be happy to help.

About 270 pages, cheapest price online is £12.08 at the Book Depository, £12.12 at Amazon for Art of the Samurai.

Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.

To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy.

odd tags


HUKD seems to randomly jumble up the tags, it was originally meant to be a humourous sentence but I've taken it off now.

Great deal if you're quite taken with the fabric/photo appeal of this book, though if you're just interested in the text, you could try the below (free) electronic alternatives:

Seems like a good deal, just went on store locator and it seems the Works are in every town and village in the country apart from a little known one called London!

Gutted as I would have liked this, heard many good things and seems like a nice version of the book!

In the Works in Birmingham New Street it's reduced from £6.99 to £5.99. I got a copy at the weekend and it's still got the price tag on if anyone needs to see a scan of it.

Yes, it’s that time again ….. like it, know it, agree with it, or not.

The reason every true human being was evolved and born is to become one and to become is a duty, not a chore. Reality is about/within onseself [leading to The Self] whilst Relativity is about others. Reality do not need to compare other than to reflect/introspect whilst Relativity needs comparison/judgement of/by others to realised its relative/illusory-in-finality reality/position.

All know who or what they are and the difference between those who become and those who do not is the commitment to taking the “right”/correct/self-mutually-benevolent action when the moment arrives. This then is the “enemy” [within]. When we are peaceful, all without could be in turmoil and yet peace reigns whereas should one [self] be in turmoil, all the peace in the universe will not afford so. When a person reacts, he loses his power/empowerment. Without a single exception.

The war then is between acting for the self/mutually benevolent action against the addiction/s which constantly tries/try to devolve/prevents one from being a true human. The [5 dimensional] evolution of a human begins with the emotional/instinctual, physical, intellectual, spiritual before arriving at being a true/truer human. Thereafter, one will be at the gates of divinity and divinity has nothing to do with religion, science, aliens, cosmology and the myriad of “mysteries” that surround. Divinity is Reality whilst those who lack congnisance of Divinity are forever relating/judging/comparing/reacting, oka on the path of Fame, Fortun and Immortality.

A book is but mere knowledge and knowledge is about ownership issues, not reality. Knowledge/a-truth is the catalyst/illumination leading to its own empowerment, oka a real [and not some frivilous/inconsequential] and repeatable experience. Like, say, nuclear power, the reality of which is not about generating power nor for developing weaponry. When there is an unacceptable price/consequence/radioactivity, it’s merely weaponry however you justify it. Nuclear power is about the power within the atomic structure - the power of Divinity which allows for thermonuclear reaction thereby conferring life such that Dust will ultimately return/resurrect back towards The Big Bang.

Know your enemy/addictions better than your friend/non-addiction and you’ll be making that first step leading to the gates of Infinity. To empty one’s cup [therby enabling it to be filled with realities], oka realising one’s finiteness, before one could realise one’s infinity [within]. This is not some academic airy-fairy slant/perspective on reality, it is the view from reality. Humans, stuck at the stage of the intellect [which is not intelligence, one being futuristic and the other, the present/moment/timing], are forever assuming knowledge to be power/empowerment - hence the mistaken statement that, “Knowledge is Power”. It is not. Reality/Unity is when both are in complement whilst Relativty/Division is when both are battle.

To win a war is to complement a truth with its power, the former being masculinity and the latter femininity. This is why all true humans have both and the evolution of a feotus alludes to this fact as it starts with power/femininity before finally ending with either X or a Y. Looking at it from yet another angle, 100kV overhead is mere potential/maculinity which has no meaning/power/femininity until it engages/complements with-a-load/is-grounded. Reality is more than mind-boggling, it has no meaning until we stop relating/comparing and start complementing/uniting one’s masuclinity with one’s femininity and should that instrospection be realised, others will then have meaning, otherwise attachment/ownership/possessing is the order of the-day/one’s life. As death shows, we get to own nothing when we “go”. Ever seen a person crossing the street only to return for nothing? Psychotic, disturbed, lost, or what…. There is none so blind as he who will not see, oka addicted to that which damages him.

That is excellent, however the book is also much easier to read if you read the free text version and like it but find it a headache to read. The electronic version is plain text with odd formatting while the book has the chapters of the original text formatted neatly in a different font with a more coherent structure to the annotations which are in plain english unlike my post.

The Works Brighton has now sold out of Art of War for now but still has lots of copies of Art of the Samurai which is just as good a read.
