Prestigious schools of management and personal development use this treatise as their reference textbook and industry and finance managers still consult it today, finding an inexhaustible source of inspiration and meditation within its pages. But what is it that makes a work written about 2,500 years ago so special, so incredibly fascinating and still so relevant?
Some of its features and curiosities are still undoubtedly surprising due to their logic and modernity but its fame stems from its ability to let one analyse and interpret the book at various levels and apply its meaning to all professions and personalities.

In this text, there is a deeper and more intimate path, which deals with the emotional sphere and more precisely with the management of personal conflicts in a proactive way which leads to personal growth.
You will notice that if more closely examined, war, clashes and competition, which apparently seem to relate only to the military world, also relate to the inner and personal dynamic which is shared by each of us.
For this reason, the instructions contained in the Art of War should be taken as essential rules of deep wisdom as they are applicable to any aspect of reality.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
The Art of War is a classic text on strategy that is used in business, politics, marketing and more.
As with other classics, many of its themes are timeless and quotations from the work can be meaningful apart from the thousands of years which separate us from the time and place of its creation.
The present work is a new edition based on the original translation of James Legge. The 19th century English prose of Legge is awkward to our modern ears, and slows down our reading and appreciation of this classic.
The Art of War is not a long book, but historically it has always been sold along with hundreds of pages of introduction, commentary, and analysis. More often than not that commentary itself is hard to understand, as much of it is hundreds or thousands of years old, and translated into the same awkward English prose.
This modern edition is meant to communicate the authentic essence and meaning of this work in modern, accessible English prose, focusing only on what can be clearly conveyed and understood, and jettisoning the rest.

Esta versión ebook de Sun Tzu, resalta el valor de este texto, y ofrece un tipo de uso directo, fácil, y con un gran atractivo.
These are the words of ancient Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu, whose now-classic treatise, The Art of War, was written more than 2,500 years ago. Originally a text for victory on the battlefield, the book has vastly transcended its original purpose.
Here is a seminal work on the philosophy of successful leadership that is as applicable to contemporary business as it is to war. Today many leading American business schools use the text as required reading for aspiring managers, and even Oliver Stone's award-winning film Wall Street cites The Art of War as a guide to those who strive for success.
Now acclaimed novelist James Clavell, for whom Sun Tzu's writing has been an inspiration, gives us a newly edited Art of War. Author of the best-selling Asian saga consisting of Shogun, Tai-Pan, Gai-jin, King Rat, Noble House, and Whirlwind, Clavell first heard about Sun Tzu in Hong Kong in 1977, and since then The Art Of War has been his constant companion--he refers to it frequently in Noble House. He has taken a 1910 translation of the book and clarified it for the contemporary reader. This new edition of The Art Of War is an extraordinary book made even more relevant by an extraordinary editor.
The Art of War was first translated for the Western world in the late eighteenth century. The work is attributed to the ancient writer Sun Tzu (Sun Wu) and is thought to have been originally recorded at the end of the sixth century, B.C.E. However, due to its age Chinese historians contest whether or not the version of The Art of War we have today is a revised version of the original treatise.
