Thunder in the Sky; On the Acquisition and Exercise of Power

Editorial Reviews

David Rouse
Asian classicist Cleary has translated a virtual library of ancient Zen, Taoist, and Confucian writings. His translations of Miyamoto Musashi's "The Book of Five Rings" and Sun-tzu's "The Art of War" (1993), which have been touted as keys to political and business success, are particularly popular. For those who view the marketplace as a battleground, he renders here first-time translations of two ancient, influential Chinese masterpieces. "Thunder in the sky" in Chinese symbology means "great power," and Cleary suggests that a careful reading of both "The Master of Demon Valley" and "The Master of the Storehouse" will lead to an understanding of "the acquisition and exercise of power." Recommended for philosophy and eclectic business collections.
