Bookcase : The Art of War

• Sun Tzu
• Translated by John Minford
• Penguin
• RRP $25.00

Not review – as there is little new to say on the sixth century BC Chinese military treatise – but heads up that Penguin has released the text in Penguin Classic version.
For those who haven’t come across The Art of War, it is one of the oldest books on military strategy in the world. It has widespread popularity in corporate culture – where numerous business books have been written applying its military tactic lessons to office politics, planning and corporate strategy.
Sun Tzu wrote that strategy is not just planning in the traditional sense of working through to-do list – rather it involves quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Leaders as diverse as Mao Zedong, Napoleon and General Douglas MacArthur have claimed to have drawn inspiration from the work.
