The Art of Peace: Balance Over Conflict in Sun-Tzu's the Art of War
Synopses & Reviews
This new translation of the strategy classic The Art of War restores the authentic meaning of the original work by showing how finding balance rather than doing battle is the true means to overcoming adversity.
The Art of Peace is drawn from the ancient Taoist work The Art of War by Sun-tzu-it is, in effect, the Tao of Peace.
