Title: The Art of War
Author: Sun Tzu
The Art of War is one of the oldest, most successful, and definitive books on military strategy and tactics. It has had an influence on Eastern military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu suggested 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 thought that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through an established list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions - planning works in a controlled environment, but in a changing environment.
Table of Contents:
1.Laying Plans- explores the five fundamental factors that define a successful outcome. By thinking, assessing and comparing these points you can calculate a victory, deviation from them will ensure failure. Remember that war is a very grave matter of state.
2.Waging War- explains how to understand the economy of war and how success requires making the winning play, which in turn, requires limiting the cost of competition and conflict.
3.Attack by Stratagem- defines the source of strength as unity, not size, and the five ingredients that you need to succeed in any war.
4.Tactical Dispositions- explains the importance of defending existing positions until you can advance them and how you must recognize opportunities, not try to create them.
5.Energy- explains the use of creativity and timing in building your momentum.
6.Weak Points & Strong- explains how your opportunities come from the openings in the environment caused by the relative weakness of your enemy in a given area.
