The Art of War by Sun Tzu is the best known and most highly regarded book on martial strategy ever written. Although its wisdom is from ancient China, its principles and advice are timeless—as applicable today on the battlefield as in the boardroom or the bedroom.
Thirteen chapters present incisive strategies explaining how to overcome and defeat any foe—starting with an honest assessment of your own strengths and those of your opponents, followed by valuable advice on how to outfox and outwit stronger enemies through the use of clever deception, espionage, alliances and deflection—and the ability to turn your weaknesses into strengths.
