The Art of War by Sun Tzu is one of the world's most profound treatises on strategy and leadership, and it has been a best seller in numerous editions around the world. Perhaps best known for the dictum "win without fighting", The Art of War has attracted millions of readers seeking to understand the underlying dynamics of conflict and victory. However, for all the popularity of the various editions, The Art of War remains one of the most difficult texts to understand and apply successfully in daily life. While readers intuitively sense the profundity of The Art of War and the powerful coherence of its strategy and tactics, the practical application remains elusive. This book is one of the first to make its strategies accessible, relevant and applicable to any aspect of life in today's world. While The Art of War comes from an ancient lineage of Chinese military commanders and is widely adopted for use by modern soldiers and business people, The Rules of Victory will show that the text is just as valuable and compelling for anyone in a leadership position who seeks to bring a challenging project through resistance to a successful conclusion. James Gimian and Barry Boyce, who collaborated on a best-selling translation of the text, reveal that The Art of War is not in fact about "making war", but is a manual on how to transform the complexity and chaos of unfolding situations into a victorious campaign to accomplish your goals.
