Book Description: The Courage of a Samurai is a Japanese American’s journey into bushido, the samurai’s code of ethics.

The Courage of a Samurai provides the reader a look ‘inside’ this ancient code through the lives of inspiring individuals.Why did Chiune Sugihara, aka the Japanese Schindler, save the lives of Polish and Lithuanian Jews during World War II against the orders of the Japanese and Lithuanian governments? Understand the meaning of Honor in Saigo Takamori’s, aka The Last Samurai, determination to preserve the samurai’s way of life. Learn why “Go for Broke!” was the motto of the famous World War II all-Nisei 100th/442ndRCT, and discover why this simple motto reflects the essence of the way of the warrior.
The Code of Bushido can guide us through the challenges we all face, and inspire us to live a life of honor, courage, and integrity in today’s fast-paced and changing world. Sharpen your sword, and let the journey begin!
What others are saying…
“Bushido might be a Japanese culture, but I now realize that many of its aspects have universal values and appeals. I recommend this book to anyone who seeks inspirations to be a better person who can think beyond his/her personal and cultural boundaries.” – Amazon Review
“Inspiring and clear. Wonderful stories that relate basic life principles in a way anyone can enjoy and follow.” – Amazon Review
“A very special and thoughtfully written book, that is a ‘must read’, for all, who want to reflect on their lives and learn how to make it better……especially, knowing there are those who have gone before us, making sacrifices we may have forgotten or fail to recognize.” – Amazon Review
“Ms. Whaley’s book is one of the most inspirational that I ever read. She takes the story of the brave Japanese American soldiers of World War II, and uses their story to inspire her modern readers. I could not put the book down! It was gripping, passionate, intense, and beautiful all at the same time! I recommend this to anyone and everyone.” – Chris Brusatte

Stitch had the pleasure of reading this book and here is what he thinks:
The Courage of Samurai is educational, inspirational and in general a great read. It had excellent examples of the values of Samurai, including among others; courage, respect and honor. This book could be used to inspire leadership and integrity. It is well written and thoughtful. I loved the real life examples of each value. The stories were clear, interesting and definitely worth reading. Reading this book gave me a chance to immerse myself in another culture, while reflecting upon my own. It was a great way to relax and be inspired.
