There is a complete resource included."It was so much less hypermasculine and bloodthirsty and vicious than you think it is, and it's very thoughtful," Hagy said of The Art of War. "About the first read through I really saw that war was just a metaphor for hassles and problems and issues that people face in every scale of life from really petty, stupid things to really big, world-changing, 'Should we invade this country?' sorts of questions," Hagy said. Indeed, one under-appreciated feature of The Art of War is how much of it is devoted to avoiding actual fighting. "Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting," Sun Tzu wrote. Also: "The skillful leader subdues the enemy's troops without any fighting; he captures their cities without laying siege to them; he overthrows their kingdom without lengthy operations in the field." He also explained why this is: "When you engage in actual fighting, if victory is long in coming, then men's weapons will grow dull and their ardor will be damped."Or in Hagy's updated interpretation: "Quit the awful job, or leave the dysfunctional relationship, or don't sit in traffic, go around it. That avoidance idea is applicable in so many ways." Pick your battles, as the cliche has it-which, at least the way I interpret it, is better phrased as "decline nearly all of the battles.""Sun Tzu said:The art of war is of vital importance to the state.It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin.Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected.""When you engage in actual fighting, if victory is long in coming, then men's weapons will grow dull and their ardor will be dampened.Again, if the campaign is protracted, the resources of the State will not be equal to the strain.""In war, let your great object be victory, not lengthy campaigns.Thus it may be known that the leader of armies is the arbiter of the people's fate, the man on whom it depends whether the nation shall be in peace or in peril.""Thus the highest form of generalship is to balk the enemy's plans; the next best is to prevent the junction of the enemy's forces; the next in order is to attack the enemy's army in the field; and the worst policy of all is to besiege walled cities.The rule is, not to besiege walled cities if it can possibly be avoided.""There is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare.It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war who can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on.""The general, unable to control his irritation, will launch his men to the assault like swarming rats, with the result that one-third of his men are slain, while the town still remains untaken.Such are the disastrous effects of a siege.""Thus the good fighter is able to secure himself against defeat, but cannot make certain of defeating the enemy.Hence the saying: One may know how to conquer without being able to do it."

Composed by two prominent statesmen-generals of classical China, this book develops the strategies of Sun Tzu's classic, The Art of War , into a complete handbook of organization and leadership. The great leaders of ancient China who were trained in Sun Tzu's principles understood how war is waged successfully, both materially and mentally, and how victory and defeat follow clear social, psychological, and environmental laws. Drawing on episodes from the panorama of Chinese history, Mastering the Art of War presents practical summaries of these essential laws along with tales of conflict and strategy that show in concrete terms the proper use of Sun Tzu's principles. The book also examines the social and psychological aspects of organization and crisis management. The translator's introduction surveys the Chinese philosophies of war and conflict and explores in depth the parallels between The Art of War and the oldest handbook of strategic living, the I Ching (Book of Changes).

The Art of War is almost certainly the most famous study of strategy ever written and has had an extraordinary influence on the history of warfare. The principles Sun-tzu expounded were utilized brilliantly by such great Asian war leaders as Mao Tse-tung, Giap, and Yamamoto. First translated two hundred years ago by a French missionary, Sun-tzu’s Art of War has been credited with influencing Napoleon, the German General Staff, and even the planning for Desert Storm. Many Japanese companies make this book required reading for their key executives. And increasingly, Western businesspeople and others are turning to the Art of War for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive situations of all kinds. Unlike most editions of Sun-tzu currently available (many simply retreads of older, flawed translations), this superb new translation makes use of the best available classical Chinese manuscripts, including the ancient “tomb text” version discovered by archaeologists at Linyi, China. Ralph Sawyer, an outstanding Western scholar of ancient Chinese warfare and a successful businessman in his own right, places this classic work of strategy in its proper historical context. Sawyer supplies a portrait of Sun-tzu’s era and outlines several battles of the period that may have either influenced Sun-tzu or been conducted by him. While appreciative of the philosophical richness of the Art of War, this edition stresses Sun-tzu’s practical origins and presents a translation that is both accurate and accessible.

Three of the most famous works on military organization and strategy ever written! When exploring the subject of war, there can be no true discussion without the fundamentals expressed in these three classics. Born in different centuries, of different cultures, and with different perspectives, authors Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, and von Clausewitz brilliantly discuss how to approach conflict, determine your strength, and use it to emerge victoriously?on and off the battlefield. In The Art of War, widely regarded as "The Oldest Military Treatise in the World," Sun Tzu covers principles of tactics, maneuvering, communication, and supplies; the use of terrain, fire, and the seasons of the year; the utilization of spies; and the treatment of soldiers, including captives. Best known as the political theorist who wrote The Prince, Niccolò Machiavelli considered The Art of War his most important work. This revolutionary 1520 treatise clearly discusses strategy, the handling of recruitment and weapons, motivating troops, demoralizing enemies, and achieving tactical advantages. Written two centuries ago by a Prussian military thinker, Principles of War is the most frequently cited book on modern warfare. In this work, von Clausewitz examines moral and psychological aspects of warfare, stressing the necessity of courage and self-sacrifice, as well as the importance of public opinion. Available together for the first time, these classic treatises on war will prove indispensable to historians and students of military science.

This ancient Chinese work on military strategy by Master Sun is dating back a period in Chinese history where the central feudal state governed by the Zhou rulers was in decline with the result that regional rulers waged war among themselves to gain supremacy over each other. Sun, living at some time during the Spring and Autumn period (770-476 B.C.) was a military leader who wrote a remarkable piece of work dealing with the thirteen strategical principles (strategems) to be applied in warfare. His text is considered the oldest book on military strategy, and what he wrote was studied and considered useful and applied many centuries later inside and outside military. This book is in its essence a “psychology” and “philosophy” of war dealing with opponents in military struggle and civil life alike. The principles elaborated on are appreciated by leaders of military, business corporations and in sports today.

It’s the perfect meeting of minds. One, a general whose epigrammatic lessons on strategy offer timeless insight and wisdom. And the other, a visual thinker whose succinct diagrams and charts give readers a fresh way of looking at life’s challenges and opportunities. A Bronze Age/Information Age marriage of Sun Tzu and Jessica Hagy, The Art of War Visualized is an inspired mash-up, a work that completely reenergizes the perennial bestseller and makes it accessible to a new generation of students, entrepreneurs, business leaders, artists, seekers, lovers of games and game theory, and anyone else who knows the value of seeking guidance for the future in the teachings of the past. It’s as if Sun Tzu got a 21st-century do-over. Author and illustrator of How to Be Interesting, Jessica Hagy is a cutting-edge thinker whose language—comprising circles, arrows, and lines and the well-chosen word or two—makes her an ideal philosopher for our ever-more-visual culture. Her charts and diagrams are deceptively simple, often funny, and always thought-provoking. She knows how to communicate not only ideas but the complex process of thinking itself, complete with its twists and surprises. For The Art of War Visualized, she presents her vision in evocative ink-brush art and bold typography. The result is page after page in which each passage of the complete canonical text (in its best-known Lionel Giles translation) is visually interpreted in a singular diagram, chart, or other illustration—transforming, reenergizing, and making the classic dazzlingly accessible for a new generation of readers.
