Author and illustrator of How to Be Interesting, Jessica Hagy is a cutting-edge thinker whose language - comprising circles, arrows, and lines and the well-chosen word or ?two - makes her an ideal philosopher for our ever-more-visual culture. Her charts and diagrams are deceptively simple, often funny, and always thought-provoking. She knows how to communicate not only ideas but the complex process of thinking itself, complete with its twists and surprises. ?For The Art of War Visualized, she presents her vision in evocative ink-brush art and bold typography. The result is page after page in which each passage of the complete canonical text (in its best-known Lionel Giles translation) is visually interpreted in a singular diagram, chart, or other illustration - transforming, reenergizing, and making the classic dazzlingly accessible for a new generation of readers.

Review quote

"Charts and graphs cartoonist Jessica Hagy has turned [The Art of War] to her own purposes. In The Art of War: Visualized, she updates Sun Tzu's strategic advice as pithy infographics for contemporary readers." -- Fast Company co.Create

"Hagy's book may appeal to managers in a way the original doesn't because she's taken what has always been considered metaphorical business wisdom and visualized it, sometimes literally, as business wisdom." -- The Harvard Business Review
