Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195014766, Paperback)Like Machiavelli's The Prince and the Japanese Book of Five Rings, Sun Tzu's The Art of War is as timely for business people today as it was for military strategists in ancient China. Written in China more than 2,000 years ago, Sun Tzu's classic The Art of War is the first known study of the planning and conduct of military operations. These terse, aphoristic essays are unsurpassed in comprehensiveness and depth of understanding, examining not only battlefield maneuvers, but also relevant economic, political, and psychological factors. Indeed, the precepts outlined by Sun Tzu regularly applied outside the realm of military theory. It is read avidly by Japanese businessmen and was touted in the movie Wall Street as the corporate raider's bible.
Providing a much-needed translation of this classic, Samuel Griffith has made this powerful and unique work even more relevant to the modern world. Including an explanatory introduction and selected commentaries on the work, this edition makes Sun Tzu's timeless classic perfectly accessible to modern readers.

El Arte de la Guerra es el mejor libro de estrategia de todos los tiempos. Inspiro a Napoleon, Maquiavelo, Mao Tse Tung, y muchas mas figuras historicas. Este libro de dos mil quinientos a?os de antiguedad es uno de los mas importantes textos clasicos Chinos, en el que, a pesar del tiempo transcurrido, ninguna de sus maximas ha quedado anticuada, ni hay un solo consejo que hoy no sea util. Pero la obra del general Sun-tzu no es unicamente un libro de practica militar, sino un tratado que ense?a la estrategia suprema de aplicar con sabiduria el conocimiento de la naturaleza humana en los momentos de confrontacion. No es, por tanto, un libro sobre la guerra; es una obra para comprender las raices de un conflicto y buscar una solucion. ?La mejor victoria es vencer sin combatir,? nos dice Sun-tzu, ?y esa es la distincion entre el hombre prudente y el ignorante.?
