Review:

"Lead, Follow or Get Out of the Way, Sun Tzu's The Art of War is undisputedly one of the bestselling leadership books of all time." - Publishers Weekly "a book that celebrates cunning by arguing that the way to win is by always doing the opposite of what your opponent expects. Sun Tzu gave birth to a long tradition that believed strategic goals could often best be achieved by avoiding the destructive uncertainty of pitched battle." - The Economist Written in China more than two thousand years ago, this book tells of cunning military strategies and operations that went into some of the most brilliantly executed maneuvers in Asian warfare. These insights serve as an excellent guide to strategy, tactics and success in the world of business." - CEO.com, 24 Leadership Books To Read Before You Die "For business leaders, reading The Art of War is a rite of passage; quoting from it is de rigueur." - Gregory Beyer, The Huffington Post

Book Description:

The ancient Chinese treatise of military strategy is now a business classic and here brought up to date by bestselling author and military scholar James Clavell.

Book Description Dover Publications Inc., United States, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Preserved in China for more than 2,000 years before it was brought to the West by the French, this compact little book is widely regarded as the oldest military treatise in the world. Rumored to have been used by Napoleon in his campaigns to conquer Europe, it today retains much of its original merit. American officers read it closely during World War II. The Japanese army studied the work for decades, and many 20th-century Chinese officers are said to have known the book by heart. More recently, it has also been viewed as a valuable guide to competing successfully in business. Stressing the importance of attacking your enemy when he is unprepared and scheming to discover his plans, the author advises avoiding the strong and striking at the weak, and using spies for every kind of business. Principles of strategy, tactics, maneuvering, and communications, the treatment of soldiers, the importance of strong troops and well-trained officers, and the administration of rewards and punishments all have a modern ring to them. A valuable guide to the conduct of war, this classic of military strategy is indispensable to military personnel, history enthusiasts, and anyone intrigued by competition and rivalry.
