The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise that was written by Sun Tzu in the 6th century BC, during the Spring and Autumn period. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it is said to be the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time, and still one of the basic texts.

Great for Philosophy Enthusiasts

I really enjoy reading philosophy books. This is one of the essential readings for anyone interested in broadening their philosophical horizons. I loved how MobileReference included related works for those interested in reading works similar to The Art of War. The Chinese Proverbs were a great gem.
