The Art of War

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

It has been the most famous and influential of China's Seven Military Classics, and "for the last two thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia, where even the common people knew it by name. It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond.

From Publishers Weekly

01 November 2002 – Sun-tzu's The Art of War has led military strategists, economists, politicians and other leaders for more than 2,000 years, and has been translated numerous times. Scholar Minford takes a crack at it here, offering a new translation, introduction and commentary. This fundamental volume could be one of the best in recent years, as it features notes on pronunciation, suggestions for further reading, a chronology of Chinese dynasties and historical events, and more. After these briefings, Minford separates the book in two: first, a straightforward translation of Sun-tzu's book, and second, the translation coupled with commentary. "The Art of War is both inspirational and worrying. It is beautiful and chilling....It lends itself to infinite applications," Minford writes. Indeed, this new translation is accessible to anyone seeking guidance, whether they're learning to drive defensively, ironing out relationship kinks or conducting war.

A great Philosophic book with a mean name and many life lessons

The title might be a bit mean " Art of War " I think the title Art of Competition would have been much more appropriate.

Sun Tzu actually gathered this book from what he learned by talking and debating many great Philosophers of those days in China. This book is being taught in many high ranking Universities. Business schools , Sport management , Politics and …..

Every line of this books is a life lesson if you think about the context. For instance it says When the orders of commander are not clear and strict , Commander is to weak but if they are and Solider can't put them to action, Soldiers are weak.

In todays world, if Manager's words are clear but are not put into action Employees are weak, if Commands are vague and not clear The Manager is.

If you think about the context and not just the text you gonna love this book.
