Summary

The oldest known military treatise, Sun Tzu's the Art of War is still one of the world's most influential writings on strategic thought. Applicable everywhere from the boardroom to the bedroom, from the playing field to the battlefield, its wisdom has never been more highly regarded or used. Now available in its complete form-including an insightful English translation, the entire Chinese language text, and the original translator's often-omitted extensive use and discussion of Chinese characters-this essential examination of the art of strategic thinking features extensive commentary and an insightful historical introduction.
