Reviews – Sun Tzu and the Art of Business

“K-Mark, AT&T, Xerox and General Motors would have saved themselves billions of dollars if their past CEOs had read this book.”

Dr. Philip Kotler, Northwestern University.


“A must read for any serious executive, strategist or marketer. I constantly refer to the concepts McNeilly outlines and they never fail to provoke new insight into the challenges I must address.”

David Harkleroad, CMO, Hay Group; ex-head of intelligence at IBM


“Among shelves stuffed with superficial misinterpretations of The Art of War, Mark McNeilly offers what no one else can: an accessible and practical guide for applying Sun Tzu’s true philosophy to business. There are but a handful of experts who have studied Sun Tzu as thoroughly as McNeilly. Fewer still can bring decades of real-world management experience to the challenge of interpreting these ancient principles for use in modern business competition.”

Kaihan Krippendorff, CEO of Outthinker and author of Outthink the Competition


“This book is fun and serious…a fast and interesting read. I recommend it to anyone interested in strategy.”

Academy of Management Executive


“If you’ve ever felt that busienss is like war, a new business book based on the teachings of an ancient Chinese warrior has much to offer.”

Entrepreneur Magazine


“Finally someone wrote a book on The Art of War that makes sense.”

Bryan Bloom, Chief Operating Officer, The C/W Company
