Publisher's Summary

Sun Tzu's ancient The Art of War has inspired military, political, and business leaders across the world with its brilliant strategies for prevailing against opponents. At the core of this classic treatise is the message that sledgehammer approaches can backfire, and size alone does not guarantee wins. Strategy, positioning, planning, leadership - all play equally significant roles, making Sun Tzu's teachings perfect for small business owners and entrepreneurs entrenched in fierce competition for customers, market share, talent - for their very survival. The Art of War for Small Business is the first book to apply Sun Tzu's wisdom to the small business arena. Featuring inspiring examples of entrepreneurial success, the book's 12 timeless lessons reveal how to:

Choose the right ground for your battles
Prepare without falling prey to paralysis
Leverage strengths while overcoming limitations
Strike competitors' weakest points and seize every opportunity
Focus priorities and resources on conquering key challenges
Go where the enemy is not
Build and leverage strategic alliances
Big companies may deploy overwhelming forces, but small companies can outsmart, outmaneuver, and out-strategize larger adversaries to capture crucial sectors, serve unmet needs, and emerge victorious.

An actually useful high-level strategy guide

Where does The Art of War for Small Business rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Does a nice job of interpreting the obtuse & contradictory writings of Sun Tzu -- "Move like the wind, but be immovable as the mountain" -- into an actually useful high-level strategy guide for business and even life in general. Masterfully read by Karen Saltus, who has the best pipes in the business".
