Miyamoto Musashi authored ‘The Book of Five Rings‘, which rumor has it that it’s recommended reading for DEVGRU operators. Reading the book about DEVGRU operator Adam Brown (Fearless), he mentions having to read The Book of Five Rings. If you haven’t read it, I recommend it. Miyamoto Musashi has some great wisdom that’s applicable to the modern day warfighter.

You should not have any special fondness for a particular weapon, or anything else, for that matter. Too much is the same as not enough. Without imitating anyone else, you should have as much weaponry as suits you.” – Miyamoto Musashi
