About this item

2,500 years ago Sun Tzu wrote a military treatise called The Art of War. Since then, the book has been used not just by military tacticians but by business leaders, planners, traders, politicians, and even sports coaches. Here, Sun Tzu's lessons are applied to how to play a winning game of chess.

Author and chess teacher Al Lawrence and International Grandmaster Elshan Moradiabadi have studied Tzu and drawn on his philosophies to deliver 40 fascinating lessons organized into the opening, the middle game, and the end game. Illustrated with extracts from classic chess games, the authors prove that playing by Sun Tzu's philosophies will make you a skilled opponent and a winning player. Whether you're a beginner or a tournament veteran, Tzu's ancient lessons will teach you something new and useful.
