The 36 Strategies Of The Martial Arts



In the spirit of The Art of War and The Book of Five Rings, this fascinating strategy guide is full of ancient Chinese wisdom that can be applied to all areas of modern life

The 36 Strategies of the Martial Arts is a classical collection of Chinese maxims on understanding, engaging, and defeating your enemy. The origin of the collection is unknown; however, the text is a synthesis of various military maxims, political expressions, and even folk sayings—some of which are from sources that date back 1,500 years.

Professor Hiroshi Moriya, a Tokyo-based authority on Chinese culture and philosophy, supplies clear and succinct explanations of each maxim and illustrates them with examples not only from Chinese literature and history but also from events in Europe and modern business affairs. This book will resonate with anyone interested in a classic approach to psyching out an opponent and emerging victorious—in martial arts, business, sports, or politics.
