    Samurai: The Best Books Score A book’s total score is based on multiple factors, including the number of people who have voted for it and how highly those voters ranked the book.   I've only skimmed the book, but I've found it doesn't make any huge claims. I'd say it's decent for a general overview in regards to the religion in Japan at the time. I generally don't get Turnbull books for the information, but rather for the nice pictures. Once I have more free time, I'll do a proper read over of the book and give a better.
