The Art of War : The Definitive Interpretation of Sun Tzu's Classic Book of Strategy
by Sun Tzu and Stephen F. Kaufman




Overview -
Sun Tzu's Art of War is perhaps the best-known and most highly regarded treatise on strategy yet written. Compiled well over two thousand years ago, its principles are as applicable to the boardroom as they are to the battlefield. Unlike contemporary translations that have focussed too heavily on applying this military classic to corporate conflicts, this definitive interpretation maintains the impact of the original. Written by a practicing martial artist, it is free of academic commentary and ambiguous metaphors, as Hanshi Kaufman uses straightforward prose to explain Sun Tzu's message. Like the original, this new interpretation is divided into thirteen sections, each presenting vital information on military strategy ranging from assessing opposing armies to proper treatment of troops to the use of spies. Whether you are a student of the martial arts or a corporate warrior, this book will enable you to fully comprehend Sun Tzu's powerful words.
