Sun Tzu’s ‘The Art of War’ is one of the most talked about books on war or even business strategy. It only took me a few hours to read but it feels like it would take a lifetime to fully understand. There is so much in this book, notable things like ‘one must choose one’s battles’, ‘research, planning, organization and a positive attitude are important to success’, ‘one should observe due diligence’ and ‘embrace change’. Many have used and applied The Art of War into many different aspects of modern art and it is easy to see how it would work in everyday situations. There really isn’t much to say about this book. It’s just a straight-down-the-line book on basic strategy for diplomacy and conflict.
