Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » A mini-sized translation of the 2000-year-old Chinese classic on stategy, whose ideas, which are as applicable to individuals as to whole armies, are just as relevant today as they were then - although more often applied to management or politics than to warfare. There are maxims and analysis on any topic a corporate warrior could ponder, including strategic assessment, doing battle, planning a siege, terrain and even the use of spies. A timeless gem. (Kirkus UK)

Author Biography - Sun Tzu

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.
