Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Three separate programs make up this rich collection of ancient wisdom: The Art of War by Sun Tzu; Zen Lessons: The Art of Leadership by various Zen masters; and The Book of Leadership and Strategy by eight Taoist masters. Together they create a refreshing lesson on what responsible leadership requires, emphasizing personal enlightenment, social justice, and a connection with the good in everything. These are peaceful themes, and yet far from ignorant about what it takes to organize communities. A timely collection of values and strategies."—AudioFile
Library Journal

This collection combines three works of ancient Chinese wisdom: The Art of War by Sun Tzu, Zen Lessons: The Art of Leadership by various Zen masters, and The Book of Leadership and Strategy by various Taoist masters. Michael O'Keefe and David Warrilow deliver warm and rich narrations, adding inflections as necessary. Cleary's modern translation makes relevant to today's world these ancient texts, and his always intriguing commentaries and explanations help register with listeners these classics of Eastern philosophy. All three titles present stimulating, refreshing lessons on responsible leadership. Recommended for public libraries not already owning the three texts as single editions.
