"A must-read for military inclined persons"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very good, if somewhat brief, reading of a classic source of historical military knowledge. Full of strategies in looking at warfare, and how to wage it

"Not translated in very much depth"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The book was very thin, and as well as not having very much depth of translation, you were left to making your own interpretations. This fine unless you were looking for very clear business advice from the book.

Description

'Opportunities multiply as they are seized.' Written in the 6th century BC, Sun Tzu's The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise that is still revered today as the ultimate commentary on war and military strategy. Focussing on the principle that one can outsmart your foe mentally by thinking very carefully about strategy before resorting to physical battle, this philosophy continues to be applied to the corporate and business world. Sun Tzu's timeless appraisal of the different aspects of warfare are laid out in 13 chapters, including sections on 'Laying Plans', 'Waging War' and 'Terrain'. Words that are as resonant today in every aspect of our lives as they were when he wrote them.
