The Art of War: Translation, Essays, and Commentary by the Denma Translation Group

by Sun Tzu

Shambhala Publications | April 26, 2011 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Art of War: Translation, Essays, and Commentary by the Denma Translation Group is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Conflict is an inevitable part of life, according to this ancient Chinese classic of strategy, but everything necessary to respond to conflict wisely, thoroughly, and victoriously is right before us at all times. The key to skillful action in any situation is in knowing those things that make up the environment and then seeing the patterns they form so that their power becomes available to us. It is not necessary to change the nature of things to find victory. 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. The Art of War shows us how.The Art of War gives us proven strategic skills to apply when we need to take action and overcome obstacles in rapidly changing, chaotic situations. Though ancient in origin, these strategies are accessible because they are based on the ways we already do things. As Sun Tzu shows, rather than getting mired in conflict, we can create momentum and bring about the tipping point to achieve success.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from War or Work It takes the brilliancy of Sun Tzu's complex prespectives on war into easy-to-use outtakes on life. This is a book for everyone who have to overcome many obsticles throughout their day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Highly recommend this version of the classic. Clavell adds value to this "must read" with short but insightful comments. The book is 13 short chapters but you find yourself wanting to read it over and over. I have read this version several times and I agree with Mr. Clavell that every person in a leadership role should have to read the Art of War... and this is the best version I have seen to date.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for beginners While I have read a better version of the translation (Thomas Cleary's), I found the beginning chapter on military history in China to be a good introduction to the line of thought that produced the Art Of War. People unfamiliar with Chinese History would do well to read this one, then read Cleary's version to compare.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the Best Sun must be rolling in his grave at this point. These interpretations have become a dime a dozen so it has also become hard to find one that is well written. For an even better read try the Thomas Cleary version both the teachings and the essays of the Art of War.
