Reviews - What do customers think about The Art of War by Sun Tzu?

Classic on the priciples of war  May 4, 2008
This ancient classic of 13 chapters was written over 2,500 years ago by the legendary Chinese general Sun Tzu. It is a must have for military buffs that enjoy reading about the tactics of the most succesful generals. It is rumored that Napoleon used a French translation of the Art of War to his advantage while conquering most of Europe, and he lost when he broke its principles.
The principles that are with in this ancient text can also be used in games of strategy, business conflicts, and the day to day battles of life.
Here are ten principles to give you a sample of the wisdom found in its pages:

Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance with out fighting.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.

Spies are the most important element in war, because upon them depends an army's ability to move.

All warfare is based on deception.

The general who wins a battle makes many calculations before the battle is fought.

There is no instance of a country having benefited from a prolonged war.

The clever combatant looks to the effect of combined energy, and does not require too much from individuals.

In war, the way is to avoid what is strong and to strike at what is weak.

When you surround an army, leave an outlet free. (So they can retreat).

Move not unless you see an advantage; use not your troops unless there is something to be gained, fight not unless the position is critical.

Taken as a whole this is a book of wisdom and principles on how to win. I rank it in my top ten books I have ever read. It is a must have for any home library. The is a very small book that is quick and easy to read.
Essential Read  Dec 28, 2007
These are the thoughts of a wise man. It is well presented and well organized. Sun Tzu may have alluded to war, but is talking about many facets of life in general. Reading this book will help prepare almost anyone for whatever "battles" they may have to fight in daily life.
The Art of War  Dec 3, 2007
In any edition, this book is a classic must read for young people entering the workforce.

It is unfortunate that the concept of war itself seems to be a necessary evil that is not going away soon.

The military strategy, politics and leadership in this book can be used as a tool to manage your career.
To achieve goals.

By using logic, focus, preparedness, timing and thinking, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.
The book helps you think of ways to win.
Sun Tzu  Sep 5, 2007
The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu.

Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time.

The Art of War is one of the oldest books on military strategy in the world. It is also one of the most famous studies of strategy and has had a huge influence on Eastern and Western military planning, business tactics, and beyond.

It was first translated into a European language in 1782 by French Jesuit Jean Joseph Marie Amiot, and had possibly influenced Napoleon, and even the planning of Operation Desert Storm.

Leaders as diverse as Mao Zedong, General Pervez Musharraf, Vo Nguyen Giap, and General Douglas MacArthur have claimed to have drawn inspiration from the work.

The Art of War has also been applied, with much success, to business and managerial strategies.
translation  Aug 12, 2007
Book was in excellent condition. Arrived in record time.
We need a translator to flesh out what the original author meant. We have different cultures. Although the text is translated to English the meaning of the text is difficult in interpret.

I have ordered the library copy.
I do not recommend this edition. Order a different one.
