The Playbook itself is the culmination of over a decade of work breaking down Sun Tzu’s concepts into a series of practical step-by-step processes. It was written by the Institute’s founder, multiple award-winning author, and internationally recognized Art of War expert, Gary Gagliardi.

As with the original work, the Playbook  repeatedly references related concepts again and again in different competitive contexts. However, unlike the original, these articles explain these concepts in detail and illustrates them with examples from modern competition. This provides an understanding of Sun Tzu you can only get otherwise from years of study.  While the original Art of War was originally written for military generals who understood the philosophical concepts of ancient China, our Art of War Playbook is written for today’s readers and provide enough descriptive material so that Sun Tzu's ideas can actually be used in everyday life.

Because of its size and detail, the Playbook is published in nine volumes. This is the fifth volume. It contains a review of the previous volumes so that readers can understand the larger context of the work. The concepts covered in this volume  are listed below:
