The Art of War

www.amazon.com/Art-W..
Category: Books
The Art of War, compiled by Sun Tzu in the 6th century B.C., is the world's oldest surviving military treatise. Long revered as the definitive guide to strategy and tactics on the battlefield, its timeless wisdom is now being applied in the boardroom, on the playing field, and everywhere challenges must be faced. Required reading for U.S. Marine commandants, The Art of War has inspired generals from Douglas MacArthur to Norman Schwazkopf. But it has also been used by top executives, sports coaches, political strategists, lawyers, salesmen, pick-up artists, and Survivor contestants. Whatever your arena of battle, The Art of War will help you overcome overcome every obstacle along the path to success.

"He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight"
Sun Tzu is a fantastic quick read. A book full of insightful quotes that are applicable to every part of your life...if you want to succeed that is. All you have to do is think about what your particular situation is and read the passages. Like trading, for example: "Move" not unless you see an advantage."

There are better translations
This isn't a review of Sun Tzu's amazing theaties as such, but of this particular translation of his work. This version by Clavell is only 96 pages long as is known to contain errors as proven by recent Chinese findings and by other academics. Since this version was published new chapters of the original Art of War have been discovered and translated, so why would you want to buy a version that wasn't the most complete one available?

5 new chapters were discovered in 1972 making the Art of War now 13 chapters. This 13 chapter version is also 1000 years older than any other previously translated edition.

For the definitive version check out Roger Ames translation:

To those who haven't read the Art of War yet, where have you been for the past 2000 years?!
