Art of War (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.512

Widely regarded as "The Oldest Military Treatise in the World," this compact little book, written more than 2,500 years ago, today retains much of its original authoritative merit. American officers during World War II read it closely. The Japanese army studied the work for decades, and many twentieth-century Chinese officers are said to have known the book by heart. Maintaining that "all warfare is based on deception" and that "in war . . . let your great object be victory, not lengthy campaigns," the author adds: "That general is skillful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; and he is skillful in defense whose opponent does not know what to attack." Principles of strategy, tactics, maneuvering, communication, and supplies; the use of terrain, fire, and the seasons of the year; the classification and utilization of spies; the treatment of soldiers, including captives, all have a modern ring to them. The author even provides rules for the "blitzkrieg," prefacing them with the words that "rapidity is the essence of war." Still a valuable guide to the conduct of war, this volume will be indispensable to military students and of interest to all those fascinated by military history. Unabridged republication of the edition published by The Military Service Publishing Company, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 1944.

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.
