Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 21-22 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Out of Stock'

Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.

'Imported'

Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

'Back In Stock Soon'

The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

'Temporarily Unavailable'

The product is currently out of stock and is not available for purchase. The product could to be in stock soon. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know when it is available for purchase.

'Permanently Discontinued'

This product is no longer available because it is obsolete and/or its production has been discontinued.

'Out of Print'

This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

Art of War (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 411

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...

this specific versioon is only for the show-off kid..

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 di

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.

Not what I thought

I had read one version of this - where the author had included a lot of commentaries and other examples as well. I ordered this version thinking it too would have information like that. It does not. This is a direct text translation - no interpretations are made available. If you want to know what I mean, check out the Shambhala version of this.

Its over-hyped

If this is what the highly acclaimed Art of War is, then I'm highly disappointed. I would simply say that Sun Tzu was like a college student of our days who was asked to write an exam. So, following the principles of college answers, he made the start and end of the answer interesting and everything in between was "anything" and highly repetitive. Add to that the fact that it doesn't contain anything that a modern day human wouldn't know. Its neither an eye opener nor revolutionary. Its just some 6th century Chinese college answer script translated to English.
