Book Summary of The Art of War


In the fifth century BC Sun Tzu wrote:

‘In peace prepare for war, in war prepare for peace. The art of war is of vital importance to the state. It is a matter of life and death. A road either to safety or ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected...’

In the twentieth century:

‘I truly believe that if our military and political leaders in recent times had studied this work of genius, Vietnam could not have happened as it happened; we would not have lost the war in korea (we lost it because we did not achieve victory); the Bay of Pigs could not have occured; the hostage fiasco in Iran would not have come to pass; the British Empire would not have been dismembered; and, in all probability, World Wars I and II would have been avoided...’

James Clavell 1981

So many little wars must be waged daily. Works on the battlefield and the office.CLASSICS:"When the enemy is relaxed, make them toil. When full, starve them.

(Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography []. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally here.)The CCLaP 100: In which I read for the first time a hundred so-called "classics," then write essay...

Patrick- August 10, 2007 review from Goodreads

One of the classics of the ancient world, it also speaks volumes in our own modern world.This particular version had a long-winded history lesson as it's introduction, which was much longer than Sun Tzu's book itself. It was somewhat interesting, but not all that necessary. The actual book can be...
