  1. The quote “Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat” is not from Sun Tzu, at least not in any of the major translations. It is so commonly misattributed that even book editors have let it slip through. It doesn’t really appear until 2002 and the Giles translation (the most famous and widely used) was from 1910.

    Not sure it really matters as it is a great line and, at least from my readings of Sun Tzu, it is something with which he would have agreed.
