From the battlefield to the boardroom, The Art of War has been the definitive book on strategy for more than 2,000 years.

General Sun Tzu’s work, still required reading for CIA officers today, has decided battles in conflicts throughout the world, and has been used in warfare by the likes of US generals Colin Powell and Norman Schwarzkopf, Chairman Mao, and the fearsome armies of the Vietcong.

Its focus on outsmarting your opponent without resorting to warfare has also seen it put to use in both the workplace and the sports field, and is famously studied by sports coaches such as Luiz Felipe ‘Big Phil’ Scolari, whose World Cup-winning Brazil side of 2002 read it cover to cover.

“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war,” wrote Sun Tzu, “while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.”

Now read the masterpiece in this beautifully-produced Apostrophe Books edition with an introduction by Gulf War legend and bestselling author Andy McNab – the British Army’s most highly decorated serving soldier when he left the SAS.

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.
