The Art of War Sun Tzu read online review & book description:

An Apple Books Classic edition.

It’s believed that Sun Tzu wrote this Chinese military primer during the 5th century BC-hundreds of years before the Bible. The book’s 13 chapters explore principles that statesmen around the globe have employed for centuries to defeat their enemies at war.

Sun Tzu starts by mapping out the five fundamental factors that lead to war. He then covers a wide range of topics, from avoiding conflict altogether to strategically positioning soldiers, pulling off tactical maneuvers, and putting spies to use.

Despite the technological advances made since The Art of War was published, Sun Tzu is still considered one of history’s foremost military strategists, and his methods still ring true. While he wrote the book as a manual for those who would literally wield swords, it has reached a much broader audience in this day and age. Warriors of all kinds-like corporate leaders or athletes-seek out Sun Tzu’s wisdom in their quest for success.

  • Good for Military; Bad for Business Ethics

    By CBConveyServicesLLC
    I read the whole thing while I was doing Convoys in Iraq. However, its bad for the sake of Humanity, when considered against employments within the corporate world. In my opinion, its one of the biggest reasons that the world economic equilibrium is failing. Counterintuitive to the infinity of our existence.
  • 🥳 After 7 years

    By ytoytom
    I’ve finally finished this after 7 years. Book has a lot of interest points… Brought the war out of me. *rawr* Though, I find it some parts more informative then not. Would recommend to someone.
  • Soldier TF2 Moment

    By A guy who loves lightbike
    “If fighting is sure to result in victory then you must fight!” Sun Tzu said that, and I’d say he knows a little more about fighting than you do pal because he invented it! And then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor! Then he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth. And then he herded them onto a boat, and beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward anytime there are more than one animal in one place it’s called a zoo! Unless it’s a farm!
  • Interesting

    By thick-billed
    War is broken down to its components. A science is killing and violent behavior between people
  • Great: Tecno never dies

    By Jaded_Key_993
    I saw this in a tecnoblade vid and read it through is absolutely worth the effort
  • A Bit Repetitive

    By mike2885
    Liked the examples in the footnotes though. Kept it just interesting enough to keep going.
