About the Author

Though historical details of his life have been debated, Sun Tzu (544 BC–496 BC) is believed to have been a general, philosopher, and military strategist who lived during ancient China’s Spring and Autumn period. Legend describes him as a fierce and uncompromising military leader; one tale famously recounts his ability to turn even the king’s concubines into unequivocally loyal soldiers.

Revered in Asian culture for centuries, Sun Tzu and his philosophy of war—from dealing with personal conflicts to achieving unqualified success in battle—eventually found favor in Western culture as well. Today, The Art of War remains an unrivaled text for strategic lessons of survival...in and out of battle.

Son of British diplomat and notable sinologist Herbert Giles, Lionel Giles (1875–1958) was a translator, scholar, and assistant curator of the British Museum. Perhaps most well known for his 1910 translation of The Art of War, Giles translated numerous Chinese classics, including the Tao Te Ching and the Analects of Confucius. He received his BA in classics from Wadham College, University of Oxford, in 1899.

From the Publisher

Here is a seminal work on the philosophy of successful leadership that is as applicable to contemporary business as it is to war. James Clavell has taken a 1910 translation and clarified it for the contemporary reader. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 27, 2020
This is not a book, it could barely be called a booklet. The picture on the front is so terrible quality it looks like the ”book” is not even in focus. I will be throwing this in the trash, right after scrubbing my fingers clean of the ink that rubbed off on them. Do not waste your money on this!!! I will look into my options for getting my money back and reporting it to amazon as this is not following the rule ”Provide accurate information to Amazon and our customers at all times” in my opinion.
