Description


Sun Tzu’s Art of War is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest tools for understanding and resolving conflict ever. But how do you translate its military insights into practical tactics you can use in the corporate boardroom, the PTA meeting, or the family reunion? James Gimian and Barry Boyce take the principles born on ancient Chinese battlefields and show you how to relate them to the situations of your everyday life. By learning to identify the underlying dynamic of a situation, you can transform conflict into victory. The Rules of Victory features:

   • In-depth explanations of the essential principles, strategies, and skills of The Art of War
   •  First-person success stories illustrating how these teachings can be applied to a wide variety of professional and personal challenges
   • Guidance on how to recognize, and even create, a critical turning point in any campaign or project you undertake
   • A complete translation of The Art of War
