This new translation of the ancient Chinese military treatise includes chapters of historical analysis touching on its relevance to today's corporate environment.

"The Art of War is among the greatest classics of military literature ever written. Sun Tzu 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
"As a reflection of the Chinese mind, this little work is as relevant as any Confucian classic."--The Times (London)
"Westerners have dozens of books to choose from if they want to learn about Japanese philosophy and military tactics....But when the Japanese, especially those in business, want information on the subject, many turn to an ancient Chinese, not Japanese, military manual, The Art of War....Shows managers how to be fearless in resolving conflicts."--Boardroom Reports
"Shows managers how to be fearless in resolving conflicts."--Boardroom Reports

When reading, one should bear in mind that while the text particularly relates to warfare, the values which are promulgated therein can be readily applied to principles of business, multiple levels of security, and personal life.
It also helped me to understand and comprehend what we see in military leaders and why they often make the decisions they do in regards to current wars and what may be going on. A must read.
Secondly, there are no page numbers.
Thirdly, the Chinese characters at the back are Simplified, but the texts in the book are in Traditional Chinese.
I'm curious how I can publish my own translated version on this book.
