The art of war by Sunzi( Book )

25 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle." These are the words of ancient Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu, whose classic treatise, was written more than 2,500 years ago. Originally a text for victory on the battlefield, the book has vastly transcended its original purpose. Here is a seminal work on the philosophy of successful leadership that is as applicable to contemporary business as it is to war. Today many leading American business schools use the text as required reading for aspiring managers
