Written in China in the 4th century BC, The Art of War, by Sun Tzu, is undoubtedly one of the oldest collections of military technique advice and at the same time, the most well recognized and the most extraordinary strategic treatise in the world. In this e-book you will find the full version of what has definitely been the most consulted manual by military leaders and politicians of all kinds and continents over the centuries. 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. The Art of War is not only a strategic manual on war and on the techniques for being successful in battle. 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. This e-book The Art of War enhances the value of the text and it provides the reader with a direct, easy, and very appealing version of Sun Tzu’s work. The audiobook is also available.
