Book Overview

An entertaining graphic adaptation of the oldest military treatise in the world.

Hailed as the oldest philosophical discussion on military strategy, Sun Tzu's The Art of War has been adapted as a graphic novel by award-winning illustrator Pete Katz. In this collectible thread-bound edition, the narrative focuses on a teacher instructing a pupil on the main points of Sun Tzu's treatise, with vibrant battle scenes interspersed throughout. Issues such as planning, tactics, maneuvering, and spying are demonstrated in the full-color scenes, so that readers can envision how military goals are achieved using principles from the fifth century BC.

   Read an awesome book about warfare
Many libraries and bookstores in the United States still carry copies of the book. I love reading banned books, because these books have true knowledge of the world.
   Exellent and entertaining
The book was originally written for a Chinese language magazine, but now contains some commentary, and sets it in the context of a martial arts lesson Sifu's disciple. The final product is great, Frank said.
   It's decent
The back portion of the book is glued on, and it gave me a cut on my finger the first time I opened it.
   Good buy
I've always wanted to read The Art of War, but I never got around to it. This was a good start, said Dr. Goin. I'm sure the orignal didn't include a little boy and his teacher reading The Art of War, but the way they used this to introduce Sun Tzu was smart. And they used them to illustrate how his methods would be used in corporate training. I like the bookbinding technique, and the way it was bound. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading the rest of the book.
   A really "cool" book for my 12 year old.
Sophisticated enough to keep his interest, excellent graphics quality, good feel to the book and enough content to still be meaningful, Morgenthau said.
   Art of War with a graphic learning twist!!
I've been searching for something like this for a while. The lexicographer's treatise is complex enough that it should be readily comprehensible to the average reader. It wasn't until I came across Gary Gagliardi's book, "The Sacred Geometry of the Word," that I was truly able to understand the meaning behind the symbolic phrases embedded in ancient writing. Even with all the training, it was still missing something as far as really grasping the teachings and, as you've probably guessed already, that something is found in this novel! The illustrations help to absorb the nature of the teachings of each chapter. Very well put together.
   great book for young teens
I had bought the book, read the new Nylan translation and then returned it to the store. Bought it to evaluate it as a holiday present for my nephews. Tony winners for best choreography and best supporting actor went to Jordan.
   Great for a tween
If you have a gamer who plays Civilization or Stellaris or other strategy-oriented games, they'll find this book useful. Cool art and good strategy, he said.
   Excellent version of classic text!
If you need to fully appreciate and absorb the material, this is one hell of a visual way to do it. What an incredibly gifted artist, textual interpretation and book to read!
   Excellent Primer for Sun Tzu
I was very happy with the book, Powell said. The book was passed to my grand nephew, who is a precocious 13 year old. The Harrisons are notorious for their voracious appetite for books.
