Overview

The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise that was written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time.
The Art of War is one of the oldest books on military strategy in the world. It is the first and one of the most successful works on strategy and has had a huge influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu was the first to recognize the importance of positioning in strategy and that position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment. He taught that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through a to-do list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions.

Meet the Author

Sun Tzu emphasized the importance of positioning in military strategy, and that the decision to position an army must be based on both objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective beliefs of other, competitive actors in that environment. He thought that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through an established list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Planning works in a controlled environment, but in a changing environment, competing plans collide, creating unexpected situations.

    Cryptic, yet wise words to manipulate people by...

    I found the tone of the book very much in the military mindset (and, as I understand, this philosophy is used in military leadership teachings all over the civilized world).

    The words of wisdom to be gained by the business world are also quite valuable. I would recommend this to be read in conjunction with Machiavelli's The Prince.

    Sunstar's Story-Chapter Seven

    Sunpelt padded out of the warriors den and looked around camp. She saw Thornberry go relieve Flamepelt, Dawnsky, and Mistrose from their warrior vigil. She saw two elders, Lichenpelt and Thrushbird, sharing tounges. She also saw Lionstar jump up on the Highledge. "All cats gather for a clan meeting!" He yowled. Sunpelt raced over to the Highledge and sat with Summerwish, lookibg up at their leader. "Two kits have reached six moons and are ready to be apprentices." Lionstar began. "Softkit and Heatherkit, please step forward." Sunpelt smiled as the two kits stepped up, trembling. "Softkit, from this moment on you will known as Softpaw. Your mentor will be Sunpelt. Heatherkit, from this moment on you will be known as Heatherpaw. Your mentor will be Summerwish." Sunpelt and Summerwish exchanged gleeful glances. They had apprentices! As the clan chanted, "Softpaw! Heatherpaw! Softpaw! Heatherpaw!", Sunpelt touched noses with Softpaw. "You'll do great." She whispered to the young cat. *********Later, in the warrior's den, Sunpelt and Summerwish smiled at each other. "Apprentices!" Summerwish squealed happily. But Sunpelt was already asleep. CHAPTER EIGHT IN NEXT RESULT!
