Original Slide Shows

The purpose of these  shows is to give you a quick overview of the concepts of Sun Tzu's strategy. These were the original Institute course material, offered with our first edition business books.  You can sign up for $19.95 by clicking Slide Show Course.

The slide shows loosely follow the stanzas in thirteen chapters of The Art of War, but the information (especially in the early chapters) is put into the larger context Sun Tzu's entire system. The slide shows after Chapter 4 tend to follow the lines and stanzas in order, while earlier chapters fill in a lot of missing context.
