The author

Sun Tzu (c. 6th century BCE) was a Chinese general whose life is shrouded in mystery. It is believed that he served King Helu of Wu, and that he rose to fame as a result of his successful military exploits. Today he is a legendary figure in Asia, and his works are cited in every discipline from sports to politics in the West.
