About the book:

Conflict is an inevitable part of life, according to this ancient Chinese classic of strategy, but everything necessary to deal with conflict wisely, honorably, victoriously, is right before us at all times. The key to skillful action in any situation is in knowing those things that make up the environment and then arranging them so that their power becomes available to us. It is not necessary to change the nature of things to come to victory. Crucial to Sun Tzu's vision is knowledgeespecially self-knowledgeand a view of the whole that seeks to bring the conflicting views around to a vision of the larger perspective.

This translation preserves the enigmatic quality of the original text, while the accompanying line-by-line commentary and essay reveal the full implications of Sun Tzu's teachings and how they can be applied practically to a broader spectrum of situations.
