at least i don't know of any Zen wars
This immediately made me think of The Prince by Niccolò Machiavelli but when I looked him up I discovered that he also wrote a book called "The Art of War. I have not read this letter but it seems to cover the same ground as Sun Tzu.
My interest was because Sun Tzu's treatise, although about war, also can be carried over into personal life and this is what The Prince is about. Macciavelli is said to have carried ideas from The Prince into his The Art of War.
So, a story about someone who takes the ideas from Sun Tzu or Macciavelli into his/her life? Could be Terran or scifi
