Overview

The Art of War is a classic of military strategy. It is ascribed to Sun Tzu, also named Sunzi or Sun Wu, a quasi-legendary figure. The work has been dated from between the 6th to the 3rd century BCE. It is known worldwide and is read widely by students of politics and the military.

As with other classics, many of its themes are timeless. Quotations from the work can be meaningful apart from the thousands of years which separate us from the time and place of its creation.

The present work is a new edition based on the original translation of Lionel Giles. The 1910 English prose of Giles is awkward to our modern ears, and slows down our reading and appreciation of this classic. This modern edition is meant to communicate the authentic essence and meaning of this work in modern, accessible English prose.

    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!
