Publisher's Summary

The Thirty-Six Strategies of Ancient China is an easy listen and a fascinating look at how many of the strategies and tactics mentioned by Sun Tzu in his book, The Art Of War, were employed in ancient times.

This is one of the most diverse yet accessible collections of Chinese strategies yet assembled. Brief in form, yet endless in wisdom, these fundamental rules of military engagement are easily adapted to the modern office, sports team, or everyday task.

Taken from sources ranging from Lao Zi to Miyamoto Musashi, Stefan H. Verstappen has assembled a fascinating and impressive selection of historical and anecdotal evidence in support of this classic doctrine of strategy and one of the most influential works of East Asian philosophy. Whether you are a platoon commander or a weekend warrior, this book will enable you to stay three steps ahead.
