    Stephen F. Kaufman, Hanshi, 10th Dan, is the holder of the highest title and rank attainable in the martial arts. His martial system, Hebi-ryu ("School of the Snake"), is recognized as one of the most effective martial methods in the world. A career spanning close to 60 years began in Okinawa in the 1950's. He's acknowledged as the "founding father" of American karate and has received countless awards and honors, including an induction into the World Karate Union Hall of Fame as Author of the Year in 2011.

    Kaufman has authored and interpreted many martial arts titles including Musashi's Book of Five Rings, The Way of the Modern Warrior, and The Shogun's Scroll, all available from Tuttle Publishing.
    Sun Tzu's Art of War is perhaps the best-known and most highly regarded treatise on strategy yet written. Compiled well over two thousand years ago, its principles are as applicable to the boardroom as they are to the battlefield.
    Unlike contemporary translations that have focussed too heavily on applying this military classic to corporate conflicts, this definitive interpretation maintains the impact of the original. Written by a practicing martial artist, it is free of academic commentary and ambiguous metaphors, as Hanshi Kaufman uses straightforward prose to explain Sun Tzu's message. Like the original, this new interpretation is divided into thirteen sections, each presenting vital information on military strategy ranging from assessing opposing armies to proper treatment of troops to the use of spies.
    Whether you are a student of the martial arts or a corporate warrior, this book will enable you to fully comprehend Sun Tzu's powerful words.
