This Chinese treatise on war was written by Sun Tzu in the 6th century B.C. Each one of the 13 chapters is devoted to a different aspect of warfare, making it the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time. Studied by generals from Napoleon to Rommel, it is still one of the most influential works on the subject and is required reading in most military academies around the world. Although it was meant to be a practical guide to warfare in the age of chariots, this seminal work on the philosophy of successful leadership is as applicable to contemporary business as it is to war, and has become increasingly popular among today's corporate and political leaders. Read it and discover why The Art of War has guided soldiers, generals, martial artists, and seekers throughout the ages. It is the definitive master key to power and victory. This Original Classic Edition features an introduction by Mitch Horowitz, the PEN Award-winning author of books including Occult America and The Miracle Club. A lecturer-in-residence at the University of Philosophical Research in Los Angeles, Mitch introduces and edits G&D Media’s line of Condensed Classics and is the author of the Napoleon Hill Success Course series, including The Miracle of a Definite Chief Aim and The Power of the Master Mind.
