Sun Tzu was one of the greatest army generals who ever lived. He wrote The Art of War in the fifth century BC and yet his words are still resoundingly relevant to our modern lives. His writings on aspects of warfare from the laying of plans to the tactics and psychology of manoeuvering an army, to the proper use of spies, resonate for us in today's world of cut-throat, ruthless business. With James Clavell's insightful foreword and notes, this classic is widely seen as a necessity on the bookshelf of military leaders and boardroom executives alike.
A translation of The Art of War for the 21st century. It rediscovers the essential clarity of the ancient masterpiece, cited by generals from a dozen Chinese dynasties, international business leaders, and modern military field manuals. It also contains a full commentary on Sun Tzu, the man and his ideas, contemporary of Confucius and Buddha.
The definitive work of military strategies, The Art of War, devotes each of its thirteen chapters to a different aspect of warfare. According to Sun Tzu, by focusing on response to a set of possible conditions, rather than the completion of a thorough list, successful military outcomes are more likely. Known as one of the oldest and most respected books on military strategy, The Art of War has left a large impression on Eastern military and, more recently, modern-day business tactics.
