Conflict is an inevitable part of life, according to this ancient Chinese classic of strategy, but everything necessary to deal with conflict wisely, honorably, victoriously, is already present within us. Compiled more than two thousand years ago by a mysterious warrior-philosopher, The Art of War is still perhaps the most prestigious and influential book of strategy in the world, as eagerly studied in Asia by modern politicians and executives as it has been by military leaders since ancient times. As a study of the anatomy of organizations in conflict, The Art of War applies to competition and conflict in general, on every level from the interpersonal to the international. Its aim is invincibility, victory without battle, and unassailable strength through understanding the physics, politics, and psychology of conflict.

5.0 The Art of War
This book makes sense on so many levels, and I can see why it’s a work of study for so many people around the world. This is a book I plan to reread many times over. The part that sticks in my mind the most is the idea of practicing the moral law. If more leaders would employ this in the U.S., we wo...

3.0 L'arte della guerra
Credo che per capire davvero un libro del genere bisogna fare molte letture approfondite. Sono d'accordo con il commento all'edizione che ho (di Wu Ming): molto probabilmente tutti quei manager che leggono Sun Tzu - così com'è o rivisitato - non hanno capito granché dei principi del maestro oriental...
