Millions have read Sun Tzu’s Art of War, the classic text on leadership and strategy, but how many understand its profound teachings or know how to apply them in modern life? The Rules of Victory presents the core insights of The Art of War, making them relevant and valuable to anyone who seeks more successful and creative approaches to dealing with chaos and conflict, whether at home, in the workplace, or in the midst of any challenging campaign or project.

According to Gimian and Boyce—who collaborated on a best-selling translation of Sun Tzu’s classic—one of the essential teachings of The Art of War is that when we seek to effect change, conflict is inevitable. However, we can learn to perceive the underlying dynamics of situations and we can learn how to work with them to transform potential conflict into victory. What’s more, when we master the skills of The Art of War, we attain our goals without engendering further conflict and destruction.

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
