By far the best English translation of the Art of War. Only Ralph Sawyer's translation came close but doesn't have the same fluidity and clarity as this book. Why also great: contains the original Chinese characters on the other side of the book, and copious notes to the passages in question. I have yet to come across a better Art of War.

Published in 1993, Roger Ames' book not only has the original Chinese text (a first -- mostly for decoration) but also an excellent translation of Sun Tzu. Like J. H. Huang's edition, it uses the latest discovered Sun Tzu text found in 1972. Of all the Sun Tzu's on the market, it has the most perfect balance between readability and accuracy. In general a fine edition, and one to buy and keep forever. One typographical error, but nothing major. We have seen the author speak and we must say he seems very well informed! Sonshi.com

These ancient texts are a relevant and reliable source for strategic warfare 2 1/2 millenia after they were written. I have read a number of military texts in the past. All of them use information based upon the work of the mighty Sun-Tzu.
