"There's not a dated maxim or vague prescription in it." -- Newsweek

Regarded as the world's oldest military treatise, this compact volume has instructed officers and tacticians for more than 2,000 years.

More recently, it has taken on a new life as a guide to competing successfully in business, law, and sports.
All of The Art of War's concepts retain their value to modern readers, from the prudence of circumventing a strong opponent and taking advantage of a weak one to the wisdom of preparedness and flexibility. Other topics include strategy, tactics, maneuvering, communications, the treatment of soldiers, and the worth of well-trained officers. History enthusiasts, business thought leaders, and anyone intrigued by competition and rivalry will appreciate this elegant edition of the classic work.
