Description

Presented here together for the first time are the greatest of the ancient Chinese classics of strategic thought: "The Complete Art of War." Probably the most famous work of strategy ever written, Sun Tzu's "Art of War" has sold millions of copies in many languages around the world. Lost for more than 2000 years and only recently recovered, the "Military Methods" of Sun Pin (Sun Tzu's great-grandson) is a brilliant elaboration on his ancestor's work. Only "The Complete Art of War" brings the wisdom of these two ancient sages into a single volume and gives the reader a unique opportunity to master the essentials of Chinese thought on strategy, organization and leadership. The Sun family writings on strategy have proven their value through the ages, and they continue to reward careful study. By unveiling the complex, often unexpected, interrelationships of armies locked in battle, they reveal the enduring principles of success in the struggle of life itself. With a practical index to the essential principles of strategy, and Ralph Sawyer's thoughtful chapter-by-chapter commentaries, "The Complete Art of War" is designed to bring the reader new insights into the nature of human conflict. Whether it is playing the game of politics or building a successful marriage, closing a deal or managing a large organization, making war or even making peace, "The Complete Art of War" stands as one of the ultimate guides to a deeper understanding of human affairs.
