Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This digital edition of Sun Tzu’s masterpiece ‘The Art of War’ has been considerably simplified from the original 1910 translation by Lionel Giles.

The lengthy and often laborious footnotes have been done away with, and clarifications where appropriate have been included in Master Sun’s text, retaining its original charm and delightful use of language.

This is not a large book (just over 10,000 words) because it need not be. Every slender sentence contains a lifetime of expertise.

Although ‘The Art of War’ is best known as the superlative military treatise, its wisdom has carried far beyond into almost every area of life and it is considered one of the very finest instructional manuals of all time.
