Product Information

" Thomas Cleary's translation of Sun Tzu's 2,000-year-old "The Art of War" makes immediately relevant one of the greatest Chinese classical texts. There's not a dated maxim or vague prescription in it. 'To win without fighting is best, ' Sun Tzu said. For him, war was coeval with life. Absorb this book, and you can throw out all those contemporary books about management leadership." â "Newsweek"
