The book Spirit of the Warrior by A. R. Basov is a creative research on the legacy of samurai. It contains numerous aphorisms and sayings of Japanese warriors, stories, and philosophical reflections. The focus of the book is the concept of Will - the basis of Bushi-Do. The book casts light on several aspects of the esoteric Samurai Doctrine which cannot be missed if you truly seek to comprehend Bushi-Do...
