Description

'If you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win numerous battles without a single loss.' –Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Written in the 6th century BC, Sun Tzu’s The Art of War is still used as a book of military strategy today. Napoleon, Mae Zedong, General Vo Nguyen Giap and General Douglas MacArthur all claimed to have drawn inspiration from it. And beyond the world of war, business and management gurus have also applied Sun Tzu’s ideas to office politics and corporate strategy. 

Using a brand-new modern translation by James Trapp and including editorial notes, this elegantly-presented edition of The Art of War lays the original Chinese text opposite the modern English translation for easy comparison of the texts side-by-side. The book contains the full original 13 chapters on such topics as laying plans, attacking by stratagem, weaponry, terrain and the use of spies. Sun Tzu addresses different campaign situations, marching, energy and how to exploit your enemy’s weaknesses. 

Of immense influence to great leaders across millennia, The Art of War is a classic text richly deserving this exquisite edition. 

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 01, 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.

Good translation, horrible e-book

This version of The Art of War is a fine translation, but as an e-pub is does not suit my purposes. The page advancing functions are awkward and distracting. I cannot highlight, make notes or copy in the text. As a military officer, I use this text for academic and professional writing. This version does not fit my needs. There was no mention of this in the book description.
