Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
Be it business, sports, politics, or a hearty competition of any flavor, The Art of War by Sun Tzu has long been recognized to offer timeless competitive strategies. Brought into the 21st century by SmarterComics, artist Shane Clester adds expressive graphics to the text, bringing the book back into the best selling business books category. The public agrees, as the metamorphosed book has been selected as a finalist in the Best Books 2011 competition.
Sun Tzu offers readers classic but effective methods to become more introspective, and prepare for any competition by knowing oneself better. The same strategies that have worked for centuries in effective battle can be modernized and applied to social media, marketing, and business negotiations. SmarterComics has helped to bring the title into the new generation with the addition of finely crafted graphics by comic artist Shane Clester. Each graphic heightens and enhances the words on the page, justifying this title's inclusion as a finalist in the History: Military/Political category.
"Our artists are always looking to really tune into the book they're animating, wanting to stay true to tone and character. The Best Books 2011 Awards showcase the best-in-class when it comes to publishing, and we're very proud to have been included in so many categories," said Franco Arda, CEO of SmarterComics (http://www.smartercomics.com.)
