The Lost Art of War by Sun Tzu II (commonly known as Sun Bin) was unearthed in 1972 in an ancient Chinese tomb. Translated into English for the first time, this stunning discovery has been hailed as a worthy sequel to The Art of War. Packed with precise strategies and detailed tactics that can be adapted to any organization, this sophisticated manual builds upon Sun Tzu’s phenomenally popular teachings and offers powerful insights into such principles as strategic manoeuvring, tactical formation, and adaptation. Renowned scholar Thomas Cleary brings the sometimes cryptic meanings of Sun Tzu II’s ancient Chinese wisdom to life. Like his translation of The Art of War, Cleary’s rendering of The Lost Art of War is an absorbing and practical work, whose military metaphors can be adapted to the complexities of business, government, diplomacy, relationships, and social action.
