Marketing consultant Becky Sheetz-Runkle's new book, Sun Tzu for Women, brings a female twist to the classic.

Sheetz-Runkle uses war as a metaphor for how women should act in business. She discusses many of the traditional pitfalls for women in business and how women can employ Sun Tzu's tactics for positioning, being ready, picking one's battles, and much more.

Sheetz-Runkle has a 20-year career as a marketing professional and an impressive martial arts background. She holds the rank of Grand Master and Menkyo Kaiden in Sho Bushido Ryu Jujitsu.
