The Art of War by Sun Tzu is one of the most important book written on military strategy. It has been the guideline for leaders throughout the centuries. IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK...THEN.....YOU HAVE MADE ONE OF THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF YOUR LIFE.
Ralph H. Sawyer's translation of sun tzu's 'Art of War' provides the reader with a vast amount of valuable information pertaining to ancient Chinese military and political history and tactics. The book also contains a useful foot note and bibliography section.
A fluid translation with a lot of historical background information.
