Art of War, The
The ancient Chinese general Sun Tzu is universally recognized as the greatest military strategist in history, a master of warfare interpretation. This condensed version of his influential classic imparts the knowledge and skills to overcome every adversary in war, at the office, or in everyday life.
A Chinese general in the middle of the first millenium BC, Sun Tzu wrote a series of essays comprising the first-known treatise on war and how to fight it. Europeans first heard about his writing and ideas just before the French Revolution in 1789 through a translation by Father J J M Amiot.
