The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise dating from the Late Spring and Autumn Period (roughly 5th century BC)

The book was written by the General and great military strategist Sun Tzu. It is one of the most read books in history. Despite being more than 2,500 years old, its principles and advice can be applied to the military, political, business and individual spheres today.

This book is very present in the libraries of directors of important companies as well as high-ranking military officers. In addition, it has been very influential in the lives of famous people from different eras such as Bill Gates, Machiavelli or Napoleon.

Therefore, this book teaches us the principles by which human beings act, how to be a good leader and how to design the best tactics or strategies at work.

In summary, it is not only a strategy book based on principles of Taoist doctrine, but it can help you now, in your life, since following its philosophy means having guidelines to know and analyze the nature of confrontations and thus avoid them.

The edition of this book is based on the 1910 translation by Lionel Giles, originally published as The Art of War: The Oldest Military Treatise in the World.

Treat your men as you would your own beloved sons. And they will follow you into the deepest valley.


When the general is weak and without authority; when his orders are not clear and distinct; when there are no fixed duties assigned to officers and men, and the ranks are formed in a slovenly haphazard manner, the result is utter disorganization.


There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.


Rewards for good service should not be deferred a single day.


The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
