The Art of War (Kaufman)Sun Tzu
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 depth of understanding, examining not only battlefield maneuvers, but also relevant economic, political, and psychological factors. This work is avidly read by business people and has often been touted by people who use strategy in their working life.
