This is Volume Eight (25 articles) of our Art of War Playbook. It
is both the shortest and perhaps the most important of the series.
The articles in this volume explain how you must make claims to win
the rewards of positioning. On unique aspects of Sun Tzu's
competitive system is that focuses specifically in on winning
rewards rather than just winning battles. The Playbook itself is
the culmination of over a decade of work breaking down Sun Tzu's
principles into a series of step-by-step practical articles by the
Institute's multiple award-winning author and internationally
recognized Art of War expert, Gary Gagliardi. The work explains the
concepts in the verses of Sun Tzu's classic on strategy in detail,
explaining the situations to which they apply the steps in Sun
Tzu's system for using them with examples from modern competition.
While the original Art of War was originally written for military
generals who understood the philosophical concepts of ancient
China, our Art of War Playbook is written for today's readers and
provide enough descriptive material so that Sun Tzu's ideas can
actually be used in everyday life. The Art of War Playbook puts Sun
Tzu's ideas into everyday, practical language as a book of
instruction. Because of its size and detail, the Playbook is
published in nine volumes. The concepts covered in this volume are
