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.
"The commentary and essays included will help the reader appreciate that this work has endured, not simply as a manual for the conduct of warfare but because of the depth of the principles on which it is based and their applicability to everyday life."--Library Journal
"An exhilarating experience. The principles of translation are among the best I have ever encountered. They have a collective genius. . . ."--Victor H. Mair, Professor, Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, University of Pennsylvania "The Denma Group show us how to apply Sun Tzu's wisdom in everyday situations."--James A. Autry, co-author of Real Wisdom: Business Lessons from the Tao Te Ching
