“The art of war is like water which flows clear of heights and fills the
hollows”! So what else Master Sun Tzu? How can one translate your metaphorical
phrasing into practical fruitful advice for Westerners? Though it was written
25 centuries ago, your master-piece is currently the most read and used world-
wide by strategists whatever fields they belong to.

Its main guidelines recommend molding with circumstances and identifying the
potential in any situation, cultivating change, avoiding conflicts as far as
possible, and transforming opponents into unwitting allies! Why have so many
contemporaries chosen it as their bedside book? How does such a classic from
ancient rural and feudal China provide a successful answer to our modern
personal and professional preoccupations?

To take up such a challenge and make understandable and applicable the
precepts of Sun Tzu, the author develops and adapts one by one the 36
traditional Chinese stratagems and enriches them by resorting to the major
Asian and Western thinkers of strategy. By telling stories and assuming a
deliberate purpose of popularization, he provides keys to conceive creative
strategies based on three major principles: efficiency, harmony and paradox.
