The Art of War: Insights on Business Strategy

The Art of War is a classic work on the subject of military strategy.  Written in the 6th century BC, the book is attributed to Sun Tzu, a Chinese military general.  The book is said to have inspired military leaders throughout history, including Napoleon and McArthur.   Much of the text focuses on fighting wars without actually going to battle.    It gives suggestions for outsmarting one’s opponent so that physical battle is not necessary.  As such, The Art of War has also been applied to business and managerial strategies – and is recommended reading at most business schools.

The GSU Library has several editions of this classic text, and several books that discuss it’s concepts in relation to business applications.  Why not add one of these to your summer reading list?
