Publisher: Oxford University Press (UK)
Long acknowledged as a classic text on strategy, Sun Tzu's The Art of War has been admired by leaders as diverse as Mao Zedong and General Norman Schwartzkopf. However, having been written two thousand years ago, the book can be somewhat daunting to the modern reader. Mark McNeilly, author of Sun Tzu and the Art of Business (OUP, 2011), which made Sun Tzu accessible to the business executive, has extracted the six concepts most applicable to modern warfare, making them easy to understand and apply to military situations. Drawing on a wealth of fascinating historical examples, McNeilly shows how these six principles might be used in wars of the future---both conventional wars and terrorist conflicts---and how they can provide insight into current affairs, such as the war on terrorism and China's increasingly important strategic and military role in the world. This updated edition reflects on all that has happened in the past ten years, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the challenge of Iran, the "Arab Spring," and the continued rise of China. Each chapter includes brand new examples to explain important concepts in The Art of War. Including the full text of The Art of War in the popular translation by Samuel Griffith, with cross-references to quotations used in the book, Sun Tzu and the Art of Modern Warfare unlocks these elusive secrets for anyone interested in strategy and warfare, whether they are professional soldiers, military history buffs, or business executives.

When the book was prepared, our example was Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" book. Like the timeless work of Sun Tzu, Napoleon's comments on the art of war were selected, edited and categorized.These comments are from the memories of the people who were with Napoleon until his last moments. These memories were studied and Napoleon's ideas on the art of war and leadership were selected. These selections were categorized in the sixteen chapter.Here are the 16 chapters:1.NAPOLEON ON VICTORY AND GLORY(According to Napoleon, to live without victory and glory is to die every day.)2.NAPOLEON ON BOLDNESS, AUDACITY, AND COURAGE(According to Napoleon, bold resolutions enable a commander to emerge victorious from an uneven struggle.)3.NAPOLEON ON PLANNING, PREPARATION, AND CALCULATION(According to Napoleon, the great actions must proceed from a calculation.)4.NAPOLEON ON CIRCUMSTANCES AND FLEXIBILITY(According to Napoleon, the plan must be modified according to the circumstances and therefore, a commander must be flexible!)5.NAPOLEON ON CONCENTRATION AND CENTER OF GRAVITY(According to Napoleon, a commander must concentrate his forces on a single point.)6.NAPOLEON ON COORDINATION AND COMMUNICATION(According to Napoleon, a commander must not allow corps to act separately, without communication with each other.)7.NAPOLEON ON VELOCITY AND NOT LOSING TIME(According to Napoleon, the rapidity increases the means of the victory.)8.NAPOLEON ON DECEPTION, SURPRISE AND EXAGGERATING YOUR FORCES (According to Napoleon, in war, in order to surprise an enemy, deception is a must! Also, according to Napoleon, a commander must always exaggerate the numbers of his forces.)9.NAPOLEON ON DISCIPLINE(According to Napoleon, without discipline there is no victory.)10.NAPOLEON ON DETERMINATION, CONSTANCY, AND RESOLUTION(According to Napoleon, how many things apparently impossible have nevertheless been performed by resolute men who had no alternative but death!)11.NAPOLEON ON PAYING ATTENTION TO DETAIL(According to Napoleon, the slightest circumstance decides the issue of a battle. Therefore, a commander must pay attention to details.)12.NAPOLEON ON COOL HEAD, SOUND REASONING, AND SOUND JUDGMENT(According to Napoleon, the foremost quality of a commander is to keep a cool head, to receive accurate impressions of what is happening.)13.NAPOLEON ON SIMPLICITY(According to Napoleon, the art of war is like everything that is beautiful and simple. The simplest moves are the best. )14.NAPOLEON ON INTELLIGENCE AND GETTING PRECISE INFORMATION(According to Napoleon, in order to get detailed information, a commander must study the problem from every angle. Intelligence is crucial.)15.NAPOLEON ON SECRECY(According to Napoleon, in war the first principle of a commander is to conceal what he is doing.)16.NAPOLEON ON LEADERSHIP(According to Napoleon, in war men are nothing; one man is everything. The presence of a commander is indispensable. Also, according to Napoleon, a commander is the head, the whole of an army. An army is nothing without the head.)We believe that Napoleon's these thoughts and comments on leadership and the art of war which we selected, edited and classified into 16 chapters, will lead commanders, businessmen/women, and individuals to victory when they face struggles.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Mete Aksoy is teaching the art of war in Turkish Military Academy.

TOP 5 ART OF WAR QUOTES 1. "Know your enemy and know yourself, win without danger." 2. "Knowing when to do battle and when not to do battle brings victory." 3. "Those skilled at making war subdue another s army without battle, overcome another s walled cities without attack, overthrow another s kingdom without delay." 4. "Those who forego contemplation, merely expecting an enemy to be easy, will be captured by him." 5. "When doing battle, prizing victories that take too long dulls weapons and grinds down spirits." From business to politics to sports, the Art of War is as timely for leaders today as it was for military strategists in ancient China: strategy, negotiation, management, analysis, psychology, logistics, risk, conflict -- everyone from Secretary of State Colin Powell to influential tech CEO Larry Ellison to NBA super-coach Phil Jackson has profited from the timeless wisdom of Sun Tzu's classic. This special pocket edition of Sun Tzu's Original Art of War uses the most recent archaeological and academic research to recover the original Chinese text and faithfully recreate it in English, avoiding the unnecessary wordiness and inaccurate abstractions of other English translations. "The Art of War is among the greatest classics of military literature ever written. Sun Tzu warfare is as applicable today as when the book was written some 2,500 years ago.... Pick up The Art of War and read it." General A.M. Gray, Marine Corps Gazette "When the Japanese, especially those in business, want information on the subject, many turn to an ancient Chinese, not Japanese, military manual, The Art of War.... Shows managers how to be fearless in resolving conflicts." Boardroom Reports "Unlike most of the more wordy and interpretive translations of the Sun Tzu, Andrew Zieger gives us a unique bare bones rendering of this canonical text a series of word pictures that, in applying his own image-to-image technique, captures the poetically laconic force of the original. In this rendering, the Sun Tzu has not needed to surrender the beauty of its language for the victorious expression of its meaning." Roger T. Ames, Leading scholar in ancient Chinese literature and translator of "Sun Tzu: The Art of Warfare" (1993) "A highly accessible rendering of the influential work of military theory. Successfully evokes the careful, meditative response Sun- Tzu recommends to would be war-makers. Of use to anyone engaged in competitive endeavors, be they on the battlefield or at the poker table." Martin Harris, Poker journalist and author of the novel Same Difference (2010)

More than two millennia ago the famous Chinese general Sun Tzu wrote the classic work on military strategy, The Art of War. Now, in a new edition of Sun Tzu and the Art of Business, Mark McNeilly shows how Sun Tzu's strategic principles can be applied to twenty-first century business. Here are two books in one: McNeilly's synthesis of Sun Tzu's ideas into six strategic principles for the business executive, plus the text of Samuel B. Griffith's popular translation of The Art of War. McNeilly explains how to gain market share without inciting competitive retaliation, how to attack competitors' weak points, and how to maximize market information for competitive advantage. He demonstrates the value of speed and preparation in throwing the competition off-balance, employing strategy to beat the competition, and the need for character in leaders. Lastly, McNeilly presents a practical method to put Sun Tzu's principles into practice. By using modern examples throughout the book from Google, Zappos, Amazon, Dyson, Aflac, Singapore Airlines, Best Buy, the NFL, Tata Motors, Starbucks, and many others, he illustrates how, by following the wisdom of history's most respected strategist, executives can avoid the pitfalls of management fads and achieve lasting competitive advantage.
