This is Volume Five (30 articles) of our Art of War Rule Book. This part of the Rule Book focuses on Sun Tzu's principles for avoiding the most common strategic mistakes and minimizing the size of potential errors. His method is for avoiding mistakes lies in choosing the least risky ways to explore an opportunity.

As with the original work, the Playbook repeatedly references related concepts again and again in different competitive contexts. However, unlike the original, these articles explain these concepts in detail and illustrates them with examples from modern competition. This provides an understanding of Sun Tzu you can only get otherwise from years of study. While the original Art of War was originally written for military generals who understood the philosophical concepts of ancient China, the Art of War Playbook is written for today's readers and provide enough descriptive material so that Sun Tzu's ideas can actually be used in everyday life.

Because of its size and detail, the Playbook is published in nine volumes. This is the fifth volume. It contains a review of the previous volumes so that readers can understand the larger context of the work. The concepts covered in this volume are listed below:
