The Art of War has been described as the "the oldest military treatise in the world". Recent research, however, suggests that Sun Tzu wrote it to celebrate his youngest child obtaining gainful employment and (finally) moving out of the house. Thinly veiled as a manual for military leaders, this crowning achievement in classical Chinese literature has now been restored to its original purpose: providing advice to those who would undertake the dangers and rigors of parenting. In this new edition, Sun Tzu's true wisdom is again made available to struggling parents everywhere. (Makes a great gift for Mother's or Father's day!)

About the Author

I spend much of my time studying how doctors and patients make decisions and how to help make them better, as a professor of medical decision making in the Departments of Medical Education and Pediatrics at the University of Illinois at Chicago medical school. But in the time that's left, I enjoy skiing, reading, writing (of course!), MUSHing, playing bridge, knitting, Freemasonry, nethack, good food, homebrewing, and board games. I live in the Chicago area with my wife, son, and labrador.
