The Art of War
by Sun Tsu

I first read the "Art of War" in my early twenties. This is a book of important lessons from an ancient Chinese military strategist that transcends warfare and supports the universal ideas of hard work, facing change and overcoming challenges. Sun Tsu states: 1. Choose your battles. He will win who knows when to fight and not to fight. 2. Timing is critical. 3. Creativity creates advantage. 4. Conflict and change present opportunity. 5. No one wins in conflict. This is a wonderful guide to life and a career in academia!
