This is Volume Eight(25 articles) of our Art of War Rule Book. The Rules in

this volume explain how you must make claims to win the rewards of a

successful position.

The Rule Book 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 Rule Book 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 Rule Book puts Sun Tzu's

ideas into everyday, practical language as a book of instruction.

Because of its size and detail, the Rule Book is published in nine volumes.
