The Art of War
Sun Tzu Introduction by Samuel B. Griffith
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Written approximately twenty-five hundred years ago, in a time of political turbulence and great military activity, Sun Tzu's The Art of War has exerted an extraordinary influence on the modern world. People of all persuasions have found inspiration and sound, practical guidance here for any number of activities that require strategy, from sports and normal business affairs to affairs of the heart. They have found the courage to view the world in which they live and work as a network of actual and potential combat zones, where the stakes are high and struggle is the primary mode of being; where no one is to be trusted and survival depends on unconditional victory. This edition, augmented by commentaries and anecdotal material, renders the classic text accessible to the contemporary reader, while maintaining the spare, near-poetic tone of the original.
Shows managers how to be fearless in resolving conflicts.
The Art of War is among the greatest classics of military literature ever written. Sun Tzu's warfare is as applicable today as when the book was written some 2,500 years ago .... Pick up The Art of War and read it.
—General A.M. Gray, Marine Corps Gazette

About the Author
Sun Tzu is credited with the sophisticated treatise on philosophy, logistics, espionage, and strategy and tactics known as The Art of War. It includes many commentaries by later Chinese philosophers. The core text was probably written by one person during a time of expanding feudal conflicts, but the exact century is uncertain. Most authorities now support a date early in the Warring States period (c.453–221 B.C.). Sun Tzu became a general for the king of Wu in 512 BC. For almost two decades the armies of Wu were victorious over their hereditary enemies. After his death the armies of Wu were defeated and the kingdom made extinct. In 1782 the Art of War was translated into French by a Jesuit, Father Amiot. Legend says this book was the key to Napoleon's success.
