The Art of War PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Art of War free pdf "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu is the best known and most highly regarded book on martial strategy ever written. Although its wisdom is from ancient China, its principles and advice are timeless as applicable to the boardroom as they are to the battlefield.

Written for martial artists by a martial artist, it is free of academic commentary and ambiguous metaphors, as Hanshi Kaufman uses straightforward prose to explain Sun Tzu's message. Like the original, this new interpretation is divided into thirteen sections, each presenting vital information on military strategy ranging from assessing opposing armies and the proper treatment of troops tot he use of spies Author Hanshi Stephen Kaufman is widely acknowledged as the "Founding Father" of American Karate and his interpretation of this classic work is specifically intended for practicing martial artists and warriors. Kaufman packs the power of Sun Tzu's original text into a straightforward narrative without the jargon or artifice of all the more academic versions of this ancient work."
