Riassunto: Sun Tzu's Art of War is revered as a repository of wisdom on how to successfully navigate the dynamics of conflict in many areas of life. However, the text's highly metaphorical style can make it hard to grasp and apply in today's world. This unique book-and-card kit will help readers to gain new insight into the text and the powerful philosophy that underlies it. Here, Sun Tzu's core teachings are presented in the form of fifty maxims displayed on beautifully produced cards with commentary on the reverse side of each. The cards are designed to be used as objects of contemplation throughout the day, enabling the reader to gain a deeper understanding of Sun Tzu's teachings and to see clearly how they apply to day-to-day interactions.
The Art of War Box includes:
· 50 two-color cards, with a principle from Sun Tzu on one side and commentary on the other.
· A fold-out card stand.
· Guided instructions on how to use the cards to bring Sun Tzu's principles to life throughout the day, at work and at home.
· A 160-page paperback, which includes a full translation of Sun Tzu's text and in-depth essays on the key ideas that have made The Art of War a perennial classic.
Review: The Art of War was written over 2,300 years ago in what is now North China. Yet it still remains a contemporary lesson on how to attain victory without going to battle. Modern-day warriors find its ancient strategies helpful regardless of whether the conflict dwells in the boardroom or the bedroom. Despite numerous references to enemies, generals, and armies, The Art of War is about nonaggression. At its core, The Art of War offers a sophisticated lesson on "taking whole," meaning staying openhearted and relaxed in order to sidestep a fight--whether you are a field commander, a CEO, or a frustrated mother putting a resistant son to bed. This particular translation comes from the Denma Translation Group, led by scholars Kidder Smith and James Gimian (publisher of Shambhala Sun magazine). Because of the text's obscure wording (even the Chinese find the original document cumbersome), the translators have inserted helpful commentary that removes some of the linguistic barriers. --Gail Hudson
