Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

It’s believed that Sun Tzu wrote this Chinese military primer during the 5th century BC-hundreds of years before the Bible. The book’s 13 chapters explore principles that statesmen around the globe have employed for centuries to defeat their enemies at war.

Sun Tzu starts by mapping out the five fundamental factors that lead to war. He then covers a wide range of topics, from avoiding conflict altogether to strategically positioning soldiers, pulling off tactical maneuvers, and putting spies to use.

Despite the technological advances made since The Art of War was published, Sun Tzu is still considered one of history’s foremost military strategists, and his methods still ring true. While he wrote the book as a manual for those who would literally wield swords, it has reached a much broader audience in this day and age. Warriors of all kinds-like corporate leaders or athletes-seek out Sun Tzu’s wisdom in their quest for success.

Ok. Some what difficult to understand.

I’m probably a bad reader or the book was going in and out of the brief lines which held together the communication. All and all, it’s a great book if you want to know more about war. I got some good nuggets out of this book. Great tips for people who are in combat (debates, sports, business, etc.) primarily dedicated on the premise of war.

Great book

I have heard a lot about this book. So gave it a shot and don't regret it. This book goes beyond war. You can adapt a lot of what you read here to life. I enjoyed it.

Not all sun tzu

The book had lots of notes and side stories blurred what sun tzu was saying. There would be three or four sentences of his work on a page with the rest relating to notes on the work. To some the notes may be helpful, I found them annoying.
