Publisher's Summary

Here at last is a clear, easy-to-follow interpretation of the classic Chinese text The Art of War by Sun Tzu which incorporates modern business lessons to make this relevant and accessible to today's executive facing strategic and competitive challenges.

For years, business schools and professional consultants have turned to Sun Tzu's 2,500-year-old Chinese text for its invaluable commentary on such topics as leadership, strategy, organization, competition and cooperation. Now the wisdom of Sun Tzu's The Art of War is made accessible to the modern audience. Not simply a new translation, this is the first book to provide a clear, easy-to-follow interpretation of the classic document. The Art of War for Executives reveals the brilliance of Sun Tzu - and shows how to win on the battlefield of modern business. The tone and insight of the original classic remain, while incorporating the ideas of contemporary business philosophers like Peters, Drucker and Bennis.

Average information frequently repeated

I struggled to complete this book. It seemed that the information was repeated over and over again without any variation or specific purpose. The information is valuable but nowhere near as in-depth or insightful as I was hoping for. I would consider this book a good refresher for any existing executive but do not expect any insights to make you a ninja.

Tedious List style format

Pretty tedious generally. Re-stated the basics of the Art of War in executive language and list format. Snore Snore Snore.
