Sun Tzu

Sun Tzu's The Art of War

Sun Tzu's The Art of War has been the premier manual of Chinese military strategy for the past two millennia and, as thousands of Asian businessmen can attest, this classic work is as applicable to the corporate world as it is to the battlefield.
This is the only contemporary edition of the classic Lionel Giles translation to contain all of the translator's original notes, to help you better understand Sun Tzu's powerful maxims and apply them in your daily life. John Minford's foreword brings insights to this classic text and its timeless relevance to the modern world.
This edition also marks the first time Giles' translation has been converted to Hanyu Pinyin—the standard Chinese romanization system. Additionally, the book contains the full Chinese language version of the text, along with Giles' extensive notes, with their original Chinese text references to the historical Chinese commentators, making this edition a treasure to military scholars, martial artists, and those planning to use Sun Tzu's strategies to conquer the business world.
Sun Tzu's The Art of War will arm you with the knowledge that has allowed those who have studied this classic to gain victory—and often, total domination—over those who remain ignorant of its sage advice.

    Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look on them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death.

    If a general shows confidence in his men but always insists on his orders being obeyed,79 the gain will be mutual.
    Grgur Ćorićhas quoted3 months ago
    There are five dangerous faults that may affect a general: (1) Recklessness, which leads to destruction;25 (2) cowardice, which leads to capture;26 (3) a nasty temper, which can be provoked by insults;27 (4) a delicacy of honor that is sensitive to shame;28 (5) over solicitude for his men, which exposes him to worry and trouble.
