Rating
Sun Tzu's "Art of War, compiled more than two thousand years ago, is a study of the anatomy of organizations in conflict. It is perhaps the most prestigious and influential book of strategy in the world today. Now, this unique volume brings together the essential versions of Sun Tzu's text, along with illuminating commentaries and auxiliary texts written by distinguished strategists. The translations, by the renowned translator Thomas Cleary, have all been published previously in book form. This comprehensive collection contains:
"The Art of War: This edition of Sun Tzu's text includes the classic collection of commentaries by eleven interpreters. "Thomas Cleary's translation of "The "Art of War makes immediate relevant one of the greatest Chinese classical texts. There's not a dated maxim or vague prescription in it . . . . You can throw out all those contemporary books about management and leadership."-"Newsweek.
"Mastering the Art of War: Consisting of essays by two prominent statesmen-generals of Han dynasty China, Zhuge Liang and Liu Ji, this book develops the strategies of Sun Tzu's classic into a complete handbook of organization and leadership. It draws on episodes from Chinese history to show in concrete terms the proper use of Sun Tzu's principles.
"The Lost Art of War: Written more than one hundred years after Sun Tzu's text, by Sun Bin, a linear descendant of Sun Tzu, this classic of political and military strategy is faithful to the principles of "The Art of War, while developing their practical application much further.
"The Silver Sparrow Art of War: A version of Sun Tzu's "Art of War based on a manuscript of the classic text discovered at a Chinesearcheological site in China's Shandong Province in 1972, which contains previously unknown fragments.

About the Author

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.
