The Art of War is one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world.

The Art of War has been applied to many fields well outside of the military.

As such, it has found application as a training guide for many competitive endeavors that do not involve actual combat.

The Art of War has also been applied in the world of sports. NFL coach Bill Belichick is known to have read the book and used its lessons to gain insights in preparing for games.

Verses from the book occur in modern daily Chinese idioms and phrases, such as the last verse of Chapter 3:
故曰:知彼知己,百戰不殆;不知彼而知己,一勝一負;不知彼,不知己,每戰必殆。
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.
This has been more tersely interpreted and condensed into the modern proverb:
知己知彼,百戰不殆。
If you know both yourself and your enemy, you can win numerous battles without jeopardy.
