The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise that was written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time.

The Art of War is one of the oldest books on military strategy in the world. It is the first and one of the most successful works on strategy and has had a huge influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu was the first to recognize the importance of positioning in strategy and that position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment. He taught that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through a to-do list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Planning works in a controlled environment, but in a competitive environment.

Don't get this for your Nook tablet, for the following reasons:    1. the pages don't fluid smoothly. For example, one page might display:    "(line start)There is no instance of a country havin   (new line) g benefited from pro-  (new line) longed warfare" (pg. 15)    Above mentioned quotation breaks a sentence into a new line by a strange manner. Like cutting off the letter "g" off from the word "having" and starting a new line at an inappropriate area of the sentence.    2. there are unnecessary blank pages that interrupts your reading experience
