The Art Of War (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.80

The Art Of War is the English translation of an almost 2,000 year old treatise on Chinese military strategies accredited to Sun Tzu.

Summary Of The Book

Considered to be one of the most conclusive and categorical writings on war, strategies and military tactics, The Art Of War is the most prominent of the Seven Military Classics from China.

Sun Tzu believed that strategic planning in military tactics was one of the most crucial aspects of war, and the trick was in expeditiously adapting to rapidly changing situations. He also penned down the five basic factors that need to be taken into account whilst determining the chances of victory, namely, seasons, ‘the Way’, terrain, management and leadership. Despite all his observations, however, Sun Tzu firmly believed that war must be circumvented whenever possible, and he termed it a necessary evil. He also believed that if a war is imminent, it must be fought and be done with as soon as possible, so as to minimize economic losses.

The Art Of War is broadly divided into thirteen chapters which discuss different aspects of warfare, such as Strategic Military Power, Employing Spies, Military Combat and Planning Offensives, amongst others. The very first translation of this treatise was in French in 1772, and the first English translation was completed in 1910 by Lionel Giles.

This narration has been employed in several fields outside of the military as well. It’s premise that fights can be won without physical involvement, and merely by outsmarting your opponent has made way for it’s applications in the corporate world, in business management, and in law books.

About Sun Tzu

Sun Tzu was a high-ranking Chinese military general, philosopher, strategist and tactician. Born as Sun Wu, he is considered to be a legendary historical figure in China.

Historians have dated his lifespan from 544 BC to 496 BC. It is believed that his strategies and expertise on war was borne from experience on the battlefield and his discourse, The Art of War had made him the recipient of immense acclaim all over the world. His writings have influenced Asia, America and Europe.

The art of war by sun tzu, translated by john f milford

while the book the art of war is a great book, this version , as translated by john f milford is ponderous and pointless... this book, instead of teaching us the teachings of sun tzu, just puts it down in the form of pointless "poems" just making the point unclear.... which is good if you want to just act cool, but useless if you actually want to learn.
if you want to get a glimpse of a good translation, then head to the wikipedia page of "The Art of War by sun tzu", go to references and links and click on the pdf version...

wonderful book

I purchased this book when I heard that the book was a part of the curriculum in some management classes. An absolutely wonderful book from which you can learn a lot about the basic principles of strategy and management. Personally, if you play any team sport (football, basketball) this book puts it in such simple words as to how one must prepare and fight.
As regards flipkart service, I think its some sort of a record. I ordered the book at 4 pm in the evening and had it at my door at 930 am the next morning.

Chinese version of Arthashastra

Although Arthashastra and The Art of War have been written on separate topics but I noticed some unprecedented similarities between the two. While the former deals with financial management and economic governance whereas the latter deals with war and military strategy, you can find an awful lot of similarities on the grounds of creation and execution of strategies. Both are meticulous and pristine works discussing on the various aspects of planning and collusion.

The original version of The Art of War was written in chinese, so its translation to english is of vital importance, which is diferrent in books by other publishers. As far as this book is concerned, I was not really impressed as I own a couple of copies of this book by different publishers in which the explanation of the chinese excerpts is just beautiful.

Good Book

Not that i have read several other copies of Sun Tzu books, but this one , i liked. i chose to read this book since this book is part of lot of management schools and i was curious why? hence i decided to get my hands on this copy and understand the teachings of the Master.while some of them perfectly makes sense, some i guess will take a litter bit of more research for me to understand. all in all a good book to read.

Good Book !

To be noted, it doesn't have any translations, for that go for other editions costing about Rs. 500.
But if you want your mind to think it itself, go for this edition.
Its not just about War, it deals a lot with day to day life, and shaping your personality.
