MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Art of War is among the greatest classics of military literature ever written. Sun Tzu warfare is as applicable today as when the book was written some 2,500 years ago....Pick up The Art of War and read it."--General A.M. Gray, Marine Corps Gazette


"As a reflection of the Chinese mind, this little work is as relevant as any Confucian classic."--The Times (London)


"Westerners have dozens of books to choose from if they want to learn about Japanese philosophy and military tactics....But when the Japanese, especially those in business, want information on the subject, many turn to an ancient Chinese, not Japanese, military manual, The Art of War....Shows managers how to be fearless in resolving conflicts."--Boardroom Reports


"Shows managers how to be fearless in resolving conflicts."--Boardroom Reports


"A brief tract on strategy that has been admired in China for centuries. Some of Mao Tse Tung's most eloquent thoughts are merely rehashes of Sun Tzu and his interpreters."--The Los Angeles Herald Examiner


"Samuel Griffith's original and scholarly translation of The Art of War shows how good scholarship can make an easily readable translation that is much more useful to modern readers."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Don't buy”

There are many versions of The Art of War available. I wanted only Tsun Tzu's sayings. Too much filling from the author and one third of the book occupied by the sayings of Wu Shu (should have been shown in the... More
