The Art of War Journalis the perfect place for you to record your thoughts and be inspired by ancient Chinese military wisdom.
You don't have to be a soldier to seek wisdom from Sun Tzu's The Art of War. The classic Chinese text is commonly applied today to corporate strategy and used by anyone who thinks that daily life--whether that's dealing with your boss, a real estate agent, your landlord--can be a bit of a battle. Each lined page of The Art of War Journal has ample space for your thoughts and notes, and features a quotation from Sun Tzu's famous and much-read work. The book is robust enough to be unpacked and repacked. You could fill the pages of this journal sitting on a mountaintop, on a railway platform, in your office lunch hour, or in the privacy of your own home. Beautifully made with traditional Chinese bookbinding techniques, this is more than a hard-wearing book. It is something exquisite to be cherished.
