    Although the historicity of Sun Tzu is today in dispute, his short treatise on the art of war has remained a preeminent classic of military philosophy and practice. In this small audiobook, the author describes in trenchant detail the approach and methods required for success in any combative endeavor. The principles he enunciates have been widely applied not only by leaders in the military but also in business, politics, sports, and education.

This is the original work without additional editorial comment.
