Today, I am delighted to coordinate with BeachBoundBooks on a Blog Tour for Lori Tsugawa Whaley, author of “The Courage of a Samurai: Seven Sword-Sharp Principles for Success.” The tour will run until November 25, 2016.
This book attracted my attention immediately because I spent almost 10 years as the Chicago Tribune’s Chief Asia correspondent based in Tokyo. So when I have an opportunity to look at a book that addresses such traditional subjects as Japan’s legendary Samurai and the Code of Bushido under which they lived, I instinctively do it.
Lori Tsugawa Whaley is a “sansei” –a third-generation Japanese-American.” As such she has an inherent curiosity about Japan and things Japanese. She has fashioned a wonderful book which guides readers into the arcane world of Bushido and explains how employing the principles of that ancient code can benefit people in the 21st Century.
