J.B. Bucklin Pens Tale of Chinese Sage, Sun Tzu
The novel "The Return of Sun Tzu" (published by iUniverse), was passed down for J.B. Bucklin to publish when his father passed away. Chinese history has always appealing to Bucklin so, on top of living out his father's dream, he also wants to convey historical teachings in an entertaining manner.
"The Return of Sun Tzu" tells of Buck Langley, a 50-year-old advertising man and occasional ghostwriter. When he is about to go broke, a letter arrives in his mailbox with an irresistible invitation. Howard Choy offers Langley a million dollars to ghostwrite his father's autobiography, who, following a car accident and a subsequent coma, has awakened to claim he is the ancient Chinese military sage Sun Tzu.
"I came across Sun Tzu in my college days and from him gained an understanding that helped shape my life," says Bucklin. "This book gives a sense of how 'The Art of War' can be used in everyday lives. It deals with modern problems and events that prove not much has changed over the past thousand years."
