Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The Art of War is the Swiss army knife of military theory--pop out a different tool for any situation. Folded into this small package are compact views on resourcefulness, momentum, cunning, the profit motive, flexibility, integrity, secrecy, speed, positioning, surprise, deception, manipulation, responsibility, and practicality. Thomas Cleary's translation keeps the package tight, with crisp language and short sections. Commentaries from the Chinese tradition trail Sun-tzu's words, elaborating and picking up on puzzling lines. Take the solitary passage: "Do not eat food for their soldiers." Elsewhere, Sun-tzu has told us to plunder the enemy's stores, but now we're not supposed to eat the food? The Tang dynasty commentator Du Mu solves the puzzle nicely, "If the enemy suddenly abandons their food supplies, they should be tested first before eating, lest they be poisoned." Most passages, however, are the pinnacle of succinct clarity: "Lure them in with the prospect of gain, take them by confusion" or "Invincibility is in oneself, vulnerability is in the opponent." Sun-tzu's maxims are widely applicable beyond the military because they speak directly to the exigencies of survival. Your new tools will serve you well, but don't flaunt them. Remember Sun-tzu's advice: "Though effective, appear to be ineffective." --Brian Bruya

Sun Tzu is great, but once a particular translation gets to the top of Amazon, it stays there regardless. This is not the best translation of the ancient classic. Ames' and Gagliardi's are the best versions. See clearbridge web site for comparisons and lots of Art of War information.

I originally bought my first copy of this book, when I was a teenager, after I viewed the movie "Wall Street." In the movie, Gordon Gecko (Michael Douglas) tells Charlie Sheen's character to read the book and learn from it. Now that I'm older I understand what he meant. The battlefield lessons provided by Sun Tzu - can be used in today's business empires.
Many have called 'The Art of War' a Chinese version of Machievalli's 'The Prince." Both books provide a warrior/prince/manager/CEO with a way to think about problems and come up with dynamic solutions. This translation provides the work of Sun Tzu in a good translation, not great, but only good.
Another positive aspect of this book is that it doesn't define what each passage means. It lets the reader determine the meaning and personally apply it to their life and situation.
Give it a read, Sun Tzu does not disappoint and decide for yourself - what Sun Tzu wanted the reader to understand - don't be forced, as some books do, to allow them to tell you what Sun Tzu meant.

This is the first edition of "The Art of War" I've read and I'm glad I made the decision to pick this one up. Cleary does a remarkable job in the introduction of explaining Sun Tzu's philosophy. The peak efficiency of knowledge and strategy is to make conflict altogether unnecessary: "To overcome others' armies without fighting is the best of skills."
Also, Cleary goes into detail of the Taoist aspect of the text by using quotes and examples from other ancient writings including the Tao Te Ching.
A rather nice touch to this edition is that following each of Tzu's sentences or paragraphs (written in boldface to be indentified easily) are the further explanations of various Chinese commentators from Cao Cao in 155-200 C.E. to Ho Yanxi of the Sung Dynasty. These commentaries help to easily show the finer points of each ideology.
Overall, a quality work that I'd recommend to anyone interested in reading "The Art of War".

Diese Hörbuchaufnahme wird als ungekürzt verkauft. Und gewiss gibt es dazu eine schriftliche Vorlage, so dass dies im Prinzip als wahre Aussage gelten kann. Wer jedoch den Inhalt des Werkes aus einer anderen Übersetzung kennt, wird feststellen, dass zwar viele (zum Teil wenig hilfreiche) Kommentare enthalten sind, aber besonders bei den letzten beiden Kapiteln sehr stark gekürzt wurde. Das ist um so problematischer, als da es sich um zwei überaus spannende Kapitel handelt. Der Effekt ist, dass die Kapitel nicht mal in ihrer Essenz wiedergegeben werden. Auch sonst habe ich den Eindruck gewonnen, dass die Übersetzung nicht sehr genau, sondern eine lediglich sinngemäße Wiedergabe des Werkes von Sun Tzi ist.Schade.

If you're going to pick up a copy of the "Art of War," this particular edition is the most attractive one to have sitting in a collection. You don't have to be an ancient Chinese general to learn from Sun Tzu's 2,000 year old masterpiece. Much of this material can still be applicable in day to day life if you look past the military language. Especially recommended for people trying to get ahead in tough fields like business or politics or even just for those who happen to like philosophy. Also check out the animated Art of War by Tsai Chi Chung if you're looking for a lighter hearted presentation of this and other Chinese classics.

The monograph 'The Art Of War' by Sun Tzu is a logically structured script.
Sun Tzu provides information on general aspects of war, which alone isn't spectacular.
Spectacular is, that Sun Tzu successfully shows the motivation and the pychology behind decisions and shows circumstances in war and how to use them in order to obtain success.
The Art Of War is a very good read and a must for anybody, who enjoys traditional Asian monographs.

One drawback on the book itself:
The book of this publisher is on a low level of quality, I'd suggest spending more money on this monograph but have a properly bound book.

Thomas Cleary's 1988 edition was quite a breakthrough in its time. Readability is high and most of the vagueness of Sun Tzu clarified. Though some suggested that his translation is lacking, that opinion is incorrect. Almost all of the words translated are accurate, although it sometimes leans too much to the general reader. Its Taoist emphasis may not be accurate. The drawback to this rendering is the fact that it deleted certain sections (probably due to relevancy), but nothing too important to the overall understanding of the text. Sonshi.com

Today many of Sun Tzu quotas are floating around mixed with Shakespeare and the Bible. And as with many of the quote they are out of context and misleading. The quoter usually thinks repeating the word is some sort of magic.

Most versions of this work spend more time trying to identify and qualify Sun Tzu's writings than just quoting them. I will not go through all the arguments as to who "wrote what when" or "translated what when" as you can read this for yourself.

Another distraction is the attempt to show how the book was applied or not applied in recent wars. This may be interesting to someone whose intention is to apply the theories of Sun Tzu; however it is not his writing but someone else's interpretation of its application.

Now let's finally get to Sun Tzu. It is easy with hindsight and a closer look at the future to dismiss Sun Tzu as his practical tactical knowledge is of a time and place long gone. He spends a lot of time on the use of weapons and information gathering techniques of the time. This can be interesting in a historical context; other wise it is quite amusing.

Oh yes those grains of truth I mentioned, well they may sound like clich's but they are still viable. "Know your enemy and know yourself". Others are just practical sense and statistical outcomes that you learn in any military training. I could go through the list, but again that is why you buy the book.

Now just as you decide that the book is outdated for any practical purposes today we have artillery and now stealth and precision, the reminder that "no two wars are alike" and "it is flexibility that makes a difference" is being shown today to still be true.
