Product description

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. '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.

By Anita N. 03 Oct 2012 5

This book is a great, simple and good translation of the rules of war that the original author has shared with his followers and the upcoming generations. This man has put so much thought and genius in his warring ways that I am in awe just by reading what he's chosen to share. Current day rules can't even compare to this work.

This special edition has the rules, divided as everyone knows them. No additional commentaries. Standing after the guidelines for being a great warmaster is a good linguistic note on the different meanings of some words through the book. It's small and reasonably easy to read, but understanding it would take some more time. At least for me is needs a lot of thought.
