Abstract:

Publisher Marketing: 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. The warrior-philosopher and master strategist Sun Tzu, about whom little is known, compiled "The Art of War" more than two thousand years ago. Legend has it that he was known for the brilliant campaigns he led around the time of Confucius. His work was memorized and passed down orally, before eventually being copied onto bamboo strips and passed around.
