Publisher's Summary

Discover the ancient wisdom of The Prince and The Art of War. Both masterpieces were written hundreds of years ago and are fundamentals in the areas of decision-making and strategic leadership.

Due to the nature of how they were written, few people today have actually read the books in detail and applied them in modern society. This is a result of the different era in which the books were written, and the language they were written in.

That’s exactly why this book was created, which is to translate ancient wisdom into modern language using modern concepts to illustrate the different points the original creators intended to make.

Here’s a quick peek of what you’ll learn:

  • Leadership Secrets
  • Common Mistakes Which Must Be Avoided
  • How to Think Like a Warrior
  • How to Remain Competitive
  • Enemies of Success
  • The Importance of Challenges
  • And much more!

If you’re looking to improve your leadership and decision-making skills, this is a book you would not want to miss. Click the "buy now" button now to get started!

7 minutes of relevance.

I would have rated this book 5 stars....if the year was 1622.
the final chapter which Is 7 minutes long is the only one that reflects the practices in modern times and overall I was disappointed, I've read both originals (Prince+AOW) this is basically a collage of the 2, maybe if you're an army general this is great but I'm not looking to take out my enemies in the opposite direction of the sun or worry if they can cross a river to attack me.

feedback for author: this book would have been great if you summarised each principal and how it can apply to modern times as you go along the book.

Currently The Best Version Available

This is the best translation of Sun Tzu's work on the market. It was a very interesting book that makes you think about both war and your own business practices.

Master of the Art of War

I think the military might be a little out-dated it still holds some great value. I think it relates better to business these days than modern warfare. But best book ever i listen, must buy it.
