The New Illustrated Edition Of A Classic Text.
The masterpiece of the sagely Sun Tzu is a military treatise written in China more than 2,500 years ago, which still offers greater insight into how we can best deal with the forces of aggression than anything produced since. Sun Tzu recognized that we live in a world of conflict, which could not be ignored or denied but had to be understood and mastered. Just as Machiavelli's 'The Prince' sets out what it takes to succeed amid the intrigues of politics, Sun Tzu's precepts reveal strategies for the battlefield that in their optimum form will enable a practitioner to subdue his or her enemy without fighting.
Sun Tzu's timeless wisdom and profound aphorisms are not limited to military applications - they contain important advice for dealing with the other realms of human conflict, such as the psychological tensions of everyday life and the difficulties of any joint endeavour. Arranged into 13 chapters, from Estimates to Employment of Secret Agents, this illustrated edition of an ancient classic is an essential addition to any home library of the world's classic psychological texts.
