Sun Tzu s incisive blueprint for battlefield strategy is as relevant to today s combatants in business, politics, and everyday life as it once was to the warlords of ancient China. The Art of War is one of the most useful books ever written on leading with wisdom, an essential tool for modern corporate warriors battling to gain the advantage in the boardroom and for anyone struggling to gain the upper hand in confrontations and competitions.
Here Lionel Giles s famed 1910 translation, laced with commentary from illustrious Chinese experts, is brought up to date with relevant quotations from Western writers and thinkers. This new edition offers Sun Tzu s timeless classic, both with and without annotation, making it more accessible to aspiring leaders and military strategists than ever before.
