Product description

From the Inside Flap

The Art of War is an ancient Chinese classic that remains and international bestselling business and self–help manual to this day. With millions of copies sold worldwide in hundreds of translations, its central message of winning without conflict is as pertinent now as it was 2,500 years ago.

This edition also includes bonus material, the translated Sayings of Wutzu.

From the Back Cover

Sun Tzu′s ideas on survival and success have been read across the world for centuries. Today they can still be applied to business, politics and life. The Art of War demonstrates how to win without conflict. It shows that with enough intelligence and planning, it is possible to conquer with a minimum of force and little destruction.

This edition includes an introduction by Tom Butler–Bowdon that draws out lessons for managers and business leaders, and highlights the power of Sun Tzu′s thinking in everyday life.

What makes this book a true classic is the fact it has many applications: power-hungry politicians, corporate strategists, the army generals amongst Amazon and your bog-standard malcontent - although more definitely exist to be found. Despite societies moving away from primal structures, the relevance of lessons learnt by Sun Tzu over 2000 years will continue to persist. Sun Tzu teaches how to resourcefully beat enemies with guile and strategy, utilse superior knowledge of the terrain, and utilise lines of communication and learn to think like his enemy.

This version, is differentiated by a) the price; and b) Tom Butler-Browdon’s excellent introduction which frames the relevance of this manual for the modern reader, provides information about the historical context, and characterises the most successful warfare outcomes.

The size makes it commuter friendly as well as an easy task to finish. Given the brief and focussed nature of the text, it is not a book that lasts – but luckily the massive scope for applications leave enough food for thought that the book to have a lingering aftertaste.

Sometimes difficult to understand the author's concepts on war since I have no military training nor do I wish to go to war. However, the concepts are apparently being used by CEO's of top companies so thought it would be worth reading, though did not see anything that could be translated to corporate workplace maybe I missed the lesson. It was worth reading for no other reason than to have an insight into how Chinese thought about war.
