Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Compiled more than two thousand years ago, the Art of War is still perhaps the most prestigious and influential book of strategy in the world today. A study of the anatomy of forces in conflict, it has been discovered by modern business people, who understand the principles it contains are as useful for understanding the interactions of modern corporations as they are for understanding the tactics of ancient Chinese armies. This illustrated edition includes two audio CDs read by Lloyd James.

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. 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.

About the Author

The warrior-philosopher and master strategist Sun Tzu, about whom little is known, compiled The Art of War more than two thousand years ago. Legend has it that he was known for the brilliant campaigns he led around the time of Confucius. His work was memorized and passed down orally, before eventually being copied onto bamboo strips and passed around.
