Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Another influential Penguin Classic-now available in our signature black-spine dress

For more than two thousand years, Sun-Tzu's The Art of War has provided military leaders with essential advice on battlefield tactics, managing troops and terrain, and employing cunning and deception. An elemental part of Chinese culture, it has also become a touchstone for the Western struggle for survival and success, whether in battle, in business, or in relationships. With this volume's crisp, accessible translation and lively, learned introduction, even those readers familiar with The Art of War will experience it anew, finding it more fascinating-and more chilling-than ever.

Synopsis:

The timeless wisdom of Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" is as effective in the modern boardroom as it was on the ancient battlefield, providing simple strategies for success and victory. Includes commentary and historical notes from the translator.

The timeless wisdom of Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" is as effective in the modern boardroom as it was on the ancient battlefield, providing simple strategies for success and victory. Now this dual-language edition offers even greater insight by allowing readers to directly compare the Chinese characters of Sun Tzu with the highly respected English translation of Lionel Giles. Also included are commentary and historical notes from the translator to further illuminate Sun Tzu's strategy, advice, and philosophy.
