Volume Three: Sun Tzu's Art of War Rule Book -- Identifying Opportunities by Gary Gagliardi, Sun Tzu

This is our eBook download of the Volume Three (27 articles) of our Art of War Rule Book. This part of the Rule Book focuses on Sun Tzu's concepts for understanding the nature of opportunities in competition. Buyer is able to download the eBook in three formats: PDF, .epub (B&N), and .mobi (Kindle), all of them without DRM restrictions.

The Rule Book itself is the culmination of over a decade of work breaking down Sun Tzu’s principles into a series of step-by-step practical articles by the Institute’s multiple award-winning author and internationally recognized Art of War expert, Gary Gagliardi. The work explains the concepts in the verses of Sun Tzu's classic on strategy in detail, explaining the situations to which they apply the steps in Sun Tzu's system for using them with examples from modern competition. While the original Art of War was originally written for military generals who understood the philosophical concepts of ancient China, our Art of War Rule Book is written for today’s readers and provide enough descriptive material so that Sun Tzu's ideas can actually be used in everyday life. The Art of War Rule Book puts Sun Tzu’s ideas into everyday, practical language as a book of instruction.
