"The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time. The Art of War is one of the oldest and most famous studies of strategy and has had a huge influence on both military planning and beyond. The Art of War has also been applied, with much success, to business and managerial strategies." (summary from Wikipedia)

Facinating

(4 stars)

I found this book very interesting to listen to and I think contains a lot of advice that can be brought into the real world and modern warfare. the only complaint I have is that each pair of chapters is recorded ceperately and there is a large gap between the recordings.

This is a book I have read many times over the years. This recording is accurate and to the point, with no extra commentary from outside or other sources.

Very nice and calm reading, not too fast but not too slow, just right for me to keep track and understand. Thanks a lot for this! The book needs no presentation, is a must for whoever wants to know about the art of the war.

This was so far the best audio book. Very clear recording. It was also a very interesting book. I've been wanting to read it for a long time and finally completed it. it's also not a very long book to listen to which also was nice.

Excellent reading

Librivox version exceeds all other audible books I've listened to. The translation was easy to follow and the voice remain clear, stable, and with a good flow. To be honest, this classic book could be a challenge for westerners but the Librovox creation totally nailed it. A great source for self-learning and generating discussions.
