The art of war

Sunzi, active 6th century B.C

Book - 2020

"For the first time in any modern language, a female scholar and translator reimagines The Art of War. Sun Tzu's ancient book of strategy and psychology has as much to tell us today as when it was first written 2,500 years ago. In a world forever at odds, his rules for anticipating the motivations and strategies of our competitors never cease to inspire leaders of all kinds. Michael Nylan, in her provocative introduction, sees new and unexpected lessons to be learned from The Art of War- in business ventures, relationships, games of skill, academic careers, and medical practices. Strategy, like conflict, is woven into society's very roots. Nylan's crisp translation "offers a masterly new evaluation of this classic w...ork, which balances the overtly military content with a profound and thought- provoking analysis" (Oliva Milburn). Readers newly engaging with ancient Chinese culture will be inspired by Nylan's authoritative voice. She proves that Sun Tzu is more relevant than ever, helping us navigate the conflicts we know and those we have yet to endure"--
