Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Three of China's greatest classical works by Zen and Taoist masters on strategy, power, and warriorship are collected for the first time in these translations by renowned scholar Thomas Cleary. Includes "The Art of War, Zen Lessons: The Art of Leadership," and "The Book of Leadership and Strategy." 3 CDs.

From AudioFile

Three separate programs make up this rich collection of ancient wisdom: THE ART OF WAR by Sun Tzu; ZEN LESSONS: THE ART OF LEADERSHIP by various Zen masters; and THE BOOK OF LEADERSHIP AND STRATEGY by eight Taoist masters of the early Han dynasty. Together they create a refreshing lesson on what responsible leadership requires. In the Zen/Tao tradition, the presentation emphasizes personal enlightenment, social justice, and a connection with the good in everything. These are peaceful themes, and yet far from ignorant about what it takes to organize communities. A timely collection of values and strategies.

Timeless wisdom as applicable today as when it was at the time it was written. The lessons continually unfold each time I listen to one of the CDs. I spent a long time looking for an inspiring teaching on Leadership. None of the other books seemed to be what I was looking for...nothing seemed to grasp the full scope or "wholeness" of Leadership like these CDs.

Without doubt one of the best distillations of the practical wisdom of Chan Buddhism I've encountered. Better even than reading the excellent Shambala book editions of the same works. Oral transmission in the best Zen tradition. Use them as a meditation on long runs.

Imagine having pages of famous quotes read to you straight without any explanation other than a brief summary intro. Also does not have any examples of modern day implementation or how people use these concepts today. Perhaps most useful for someone with a taoist teacher or part of a taoist temple, but not really for a solo beginner. While most of the statements are easily understood & true, many are obvious cliches & it gets a little boring. Wish I had rented from the library, do not buy unless you have money to throw away.
