The Art of War by Sun Tzu

Many years ago this book was the required reading of politicians, military leaders, managers and anyone with power. It provides the wisdom, strategies and templates for doing daily battle with the world. I’m not convinced it’s referred to so much these days if you look at some of the action occurring in the Middle East.

It is an insightful book and as long as you are prepared to do a bit of thinking it can be very useful. There are many instances when I have read something and then on considering it have found sage advice.

The edition I have is ably translated by Thomas Cleary.
