Reading Musashi by Eiji Yoshikawa

Started: November 12, 2018 (Ongoing)

I first heard about this book on Jocko Willink's podcast episode 50. Him and Tim Ferriss recommended it effusively. Considering that I enjoy their content and I love japanese culture, I decided to give it a shot.

Man, was it a good choice. The book is very long (1000+ pages), but I'm enjoying it a lot and I don't want it to end. It's divided in 7 parts and I'm currently reading the 6th.

I didn't realize it at first, but turns out one of my favourite manga, Vagabond, is based on the book. I love Takehiko Inoue's artwork, so it's awesome to recall his drawings while reading the book.
