Regarded as the world’s oldest military treatise, this compact volume has instructed officers and tacticians for more than 2,000 years. From its origins in China, The Art of War traveled the world to inform the strategies of Napoleon and World War II generals. More recently, it has taken on a new life as a guide to competing successfully in business, law, and sports.
All of The Art of War’s concepts retain their value to modern readers, from the prudence of circumventing a strong opponent and taking advantage of a weak one to the wisdom of preparedness and flexibility. Other topics include strategy, tactics, maneuvering, communications, the treatment of soldiers, and the worth of well-trained officers. History enthusiasts, business thought leaders, and anyone intrigued by competition and rivalry will appreciate this elegant edition of the classic work.

Not what I wanted Not what I expected at all , this isn’t a book I wanted to keep in my library. It doesn’t have any authentic information in it as I’ve read in other copies of the art of war

Condensed Version This is a condensed version. A cliff notes version of the Art of War. Good for a younger student but not for an adult.
