    Sun Tzu for Women

    In a new spin on an oft-studied classic, marketer and martial arts practitioner Becky Sheetz-Runkle reinterprets Sun Tzu’s The Art of War for women in the workplace. The ancient Chinese warrior and military strategist penned the masterpiece about 2,500 years ago, but many business experts believe its precepts are as relevant in today’s corporate environment as they were on ancient Chinese battlefields. Sheetz-Runkle extrapolates business lessons from Sun Tzu’s maxims to help women build on their attributes, overcome obstacles and forward their careers. The book relies heavily on excerpts from the classic, along with the author’s own pithy advice and stories of today’s women who are the working world’s modern generals. While much of the book’s counsel is pretty well worn, getAbstract recommends women read this book to fortify themselves as they do battle in the corporate combat zone.
