“Thomas Cleary’s translation of Sun Tzu’s two-thousand-year-old Art of War makes immediately relevant one of the greatest Chinese classical texts. Absorb this book, and you can throw out all those contemporary books about management leadership.”—Newsweek
The warrior-philosopher and master strategist Sun Tzu, about whom little is known, compiled The Art of War more than two thousand years ago. Legend has it that he was known for the brilliant campaigns he led around the time of Confucius. His work was memorized and passed down orally, before eventually being copied onto bamboo strips and passed around.
