"To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting." - Sun Tzu.
Sun Tzu For over 2000 years, these 13 chapters attributed to Sun Tzu have been the Bible, or should have been the Bible for those intending to wage war, or who are waging war. When JFK began the American adventure in Vietnam, although he was very well read, I doubt he had read this missive. Ho Chi Minh however, I am sure was very familiar with it, and don't be surprised that the Taliban is also familiar with the principles contained therein. Leaders as diverse as Mao Zedong, General Vo Nguyen Giap, General Douglas MacArthur and leaders of Imperial Japan have drawn inspiration from the work. When 2 LT Mike Vendetti the narrator ignored the simple principles of this tract, he returned home minus a leg. "Charlie" knew exactly what he was doing.
Sun Tzu Thought to have been written over 3,000 years ago, this missive has been included as a course of study in the US Marine Corps and military academies. These precepts have destroyed nations and built business empires. An executive, a general, a congressman, a businessperson, a student, or anybody just wanting to get ahead should pay heed to this missive. A female voice gives this text new meaning.

Sun Tzu & Introduction by Stefan Rudnicki "To win without fighting is best," Sun Tzu said. For the Chinese philosopher/general war was synchronic with life. Tzu viewed the world as a network of combat zones where the stakes were high and struggle was the primary mode of being, where no one was to be trusted, and survival depended on nothing less than unconditional victory. Actors Ron Silver and B.D. Wong narrate this 2,500-year-old work of wisdom that continues to guide and inspire people of all cultures, teaching the principles of strategy required in everything from sports, to business, to affairs of the heart. Augmented by commentary and anecdotes, this audio edition maintains the pure, near-poetic tone of the original.

Sun Tzu Peter Berkrot, professional actor-narrator, has absolutely nailed this reading of The Art of War by Sun Tzu. There is just the right amount of sinister authority in Peter's voice to make Sun Tzu's points very effectively.
The wisdom of Sun Tzu has been available for over 2,000 years and ignored or studied by many. Those who have studied and put Sun Tzu's teachings into action, be it a CEO of a corporation or Ho Chi Minh, have typically emerged as winners and those who ignored them the losers. As a platoon leader in Vietnam, I, like many of our leaders, was unaware of his teachings. I am permanently disabled; my replacement, also unaware, was KIA two months later.

Vive el Tiempo Audiobook. Written more than 2,000 years ago, The Art of War is a manual for achieving success in whatever battles you face in life. But today the Art of War has grown beyond a battlefield manual to become an incredible resource for those of us seeking success in business, sports, politics, diplomacy and many other human endeavors. The Art of War was one of the earliest strategic and meditative expressions of Asian philosophy during China's imperial era. More than the Art of War, this is really The Art of Strategy.
Sun Tzu At the core of this ancient strategy manual is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human life. 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. Crucial to this strategic vision is knowledge - especially self-knowledge - and a view of the whole that seeks to bring conflicting views into a larger perspective.
The Denma Translation Group's presentation of The Art of War is a meticulously faithful version that carefully preserves the enigmatic quality of the original - allowing us to discover innumerable insights in its lines millennia after this oral tradition was first set down. Line-by-line commentary reveals the broader implications of Sun Tzu's teachings and how they can be applied to everyday circumstances.

Sun Tzu L'art de la guerre est le premier traité de stratégie militaire écrit au monde (VIe siècle av. J.-C). Son auteur, Sun Tzu développe des thèses originales qui s'inspirent de la philosophie chinoise ancienne. C'est l'essence de la guerre psychologique. L'ouvrage est fondé sur le principe suivant : gagner ou perdre une guerre ne se fait pas par hasard, ni par l'intervention des dieux ou des esprits. C'est une question de méthode et de stratégie. De bons principes stratégiques conduisent à la victoire, il est donc important de les étudier. Ces principes stratégiques sont appliqués au domaine militaire, mais peuvent l'être aussi à celui des affaires, de la politique ou de la société. Ce classique apparaît très actuel et moderne par ses enseignements psychologiques valables en tout temps.

Sun Tzu Der chinesische Klassiker kann Ihnen auch heute noch - über 2000 Jahre nachdem er geschrieben wurde - in vielen alltäglichen Situationen mit hilfreichen Tipps und Ratschlägen dienen. Wenn auch Sun Tzus "Kunst des Krieges" ursprünglich ein Buch über Kriegsführung im militärischen Sinne ist, lassen sich seine Anweisungen auch auf beliebige anderweitige Konfliktsituationen anwenden. Sun Tzu wurde geboren als Sohn einer adeligen Familie in damaligen Reich Qi (in der heutigen Provinz Shandong). Er lebte ca. von 534 vor Christus bis 453 v. Chr. Sun Tzu wurde laut der Legende nach einer Audienz und einer ereignisreichen wie beeindruckenden Diskussion mit König Helu von Wu über Die Kunst des Krieges zu dessen königlichem Feldherren ernannt.
Sun Tzu L'Art de la Guerre est considéré comme le plus ancien traité de stratégie dont les préceptes sont applicables de nos jours à de nombreux domaines. Au-delà de la dimension militaire, c'est aussi un traité philosophique qui révèle par certains aspects la finesse d'une culture qui nous fascine et nous interroge.
Sun Tzu Die Kunst des Krieges ist ein durch und durch strategisches Werk und aus diesem Grund auch heute noch eine spannende und gewinnbringende Lektüre für alle, die sich mit Strategie und strategischen Fragestellungen auseinandersetzen.

Sun Tzus klare Sprache, die Präzision seiner Anweisungen üben auch heute noch große Anziehungskraft aus. "Sun Tzu zwingt uns dazu, genau abzuwägen, ob und wenn ja, unter welchen Bedingungen ein Krieg geführt werden soll. Zum Ideal aber erklärt er eine Strategie des Sieges ohne Kampf."
Der Sinologe Bruno Navarra übertrug dieses Werk als erster ins Deutsche - seine Übersetzung ist nun bei Vocalbar zu hören. Wir flankieren diesen Klassiker der Kriegsliteratur mit den "Aussprüchen" des Generals Wu Tzu, einem Zeitgenossen Sun Tzus.
