The Rules of VictoryThe Rules of Victory: How to Transform Chaos and Conflict ~Strategies from the Art of War
by James Gimian and Barry Boyce

Millions have read Sun Tzu’s Art of War, the classic text on leadership and strategy, but how many understand its profound teachings or know how to apply them in modern life? The Rules of Victory presents the core insights of The Art of War, making them relevant and valuable to anyone who seeks more successful and creative approaches to dealing with chaos and conflict—whether at home, in the workplace, or in the midst of any challenging campaign or project.

The Rules of Victory is not about an ancient approach from a foreign culture. Rather it presents the inherent human wisdom from that text about a way of viewing and being in the world that gives rise to skillful, victorious action.

Everyday events occur that dramatically illustrate one of the greatest challenges human beings face: finding a better way to deal with conflict and chaos. Sun Tzu’s The Art of War has long been one of the primary resources for working with this challenge.

Now James Gimian and Barry Boyce—members of the team who gave us the bestselling translation—have written a new book to help deepen our understanding of Sun Tzu’s classic text, and to effectively incorporate its wisdom into daily use.

The Rules of Victory features:

  • In-depth explanations of the essential principles, strategies, and skills of The Art of War
  • First-person success stories illustrating how these teachings can be applied to a wide variety of professional and personal challenges
  • Guidance on how to recognize, and even create, a critical turning point in any campaign or project you undertake
  • A complete translation of The Art of War
