Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Sun Tzu said: 'Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.'

Written around the 6th century BC, The Art of War is one of the oldest books about military strategy, and probably the best. It teaches you how, when battle commences, to think on your feet and catch your enemy off guard.

Since its translation its readers have included Napoleon, MacArthur, Montgomery, Mao Zedong and General Van Riper, who helped plan Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

This edition is a deluxe, gift edition with luxurious silk hardcover binding and in decorative protective slipcase. It features a stunning range of authentic Chinese images to lift and complement the text and a fascinating postscript on how the ideas of Sun Tzu have been put to use in business, sport and other areas of life.
