In this classic of Chinese literature, the great warrior, thinker, and leader Sun Tzu reveals the strategies, tactics and insights that win wars and render enemies feeble and subjugated. Mastery of warfare and the maintenance of power are the most important values, without which there can be no peace of life. According to Sun Tzu, knowing your enemy, detecting his weakness, allowing him to expose himself and then acting accordingly are essential practices for any leader who aspires to success. Filled with practical wisdom, strategy and philosophy--and remarkably easy to read--Art of War is an indispensable guide and resource for people of all ages who want an edge over the competition.
