Publisher's Summary

"The Art of War" is a Chinese military treatise that was written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time. "The Art of War" is one of the oldest books on military strategy in the world. It is the first and one of the most successful works on strategy and has had a huge influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. 

Sun Tzu was the first to recognize the importance of positioning in strategy and that position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment. He taught that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through a to-do list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Planning works in a controlled environment, but in a competitive environment.

Great book of strategy.

Probably the best book on warfare I've read. It's to the point and written in a very terse way. Goes good with Miyamoto Musashi's "A Book of Five Rings."

The art of war

Common sense should be the title. As a veteran who never saw combat or mice

The Art of War

The reader doesn't seem to care about the book or take it seriously. He has a patronizing way of reading, as if he's been made to read it but doesn't believe it.
