Biden's Art of War
The Wisdom of Joe Tzu available from Amazon as an eBook or paperback
This 3rd edition of Biden's Art of War • The Wisdom of Joe Tzu is a landmark update to Sun Tzu's Chinese classic The Art of War - undoubtedly one of the most important books on military wisdom, strategy, and theory of all time. With more than 40 years in government service, Joe Tzu has reinvented modern warfare in ways that were unimaginable just a few short years ago. While other books on strategy, wisdom, and philosophy come and go, it is clear that this tomb will stand the test of time.
To be clear, Biden's Art of War is NOT simply another translation of Sun Tzu's original, but an entirely new text, based on Joe Tzu’s decades of experience in foreign policy. Biden’s Art of War is the edition for the next millennium and beyond.
Prior to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, President Biden eagerly accepted defeat, conceding that his diplomatic efforts were hurtling towards failure. Shockingly he announced that the United States would not intervene militarily if Russia invaded Ukraine and that a 'modest' invasion of Ukraine might be accepted by NATO. The president effectively delivered a clear message of defeatism to Vladimir Putin who heard it loud and clear as he ordered his troops to invade Ukraine. Biden, assuming the cause was lost before it began, immediately offered to evacuate the Ukrainian president from Kyiv. Fortunately, for the people of Ukraine, President Zelenskyy refused Biden's offer vowing to fight to the death to save his nation.
Months before the invasion of Ukraine President Biden squandered 20 years of blood and sacrifice in Afghanistan as he withdrew his troops without preconditions or guarantees of American safety from the Taliban. By his own admission, he abandoned hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghan allies leaving them at the mercy of the murderous Taliban regime. His actions reopened America to the threat of terror attacks and damaged the United States' credibility likely setting the stage for Russia's willingness to invade Ukraine.
Made for history enthusiasts, devotees of Chinese philosophy, business leaders, and anyone intrigued by competition and rivalry, and leadership and power, will appreciate this fun new edition of the classic work. This book is a lighthearted attempt to describe President Biden's war-fighting philosophy as demonstrated by his first two years in office.
Chinese general Sun Tzu (c.544–496 B.C.) was a military strategist as well as a philosopher and author. He is reputed to have had a successful military career, during which he tested the principles that he later expounded upon in The Art of War. His strategic approaches possess broad applications that extend to public administration, planning, and diplomacy, ensuring their enduring relevance.
