about this book

A new edition of one of the best-selling translations of the Chinese classic, with extensive commentary and in-depth essays explaining how to apply the wisdom of nonaggression to conflicts in everyday life.

At the core of this ancient strategy manual is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human life. Since, as Sun Tzu teaches, aggression and response in kind can lead only to destruction, we must learn to work with conflict in a more profound and effective way. This unusually faithful translation carefully preserves the enigmatic quality of the original–allowing us to discover innumerable insights in its lines millennia after this oral tradition was first set down. Line-by-line commentary and three extensive essays reveal the broader implications of Sun Tzu’s teachings and how they can be applied to everyday circumstances.
