"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)

This book was wonderful! I have never read such a fascinating book! I know it sounds cheesy and all but really you should read the book. SOMEONE should be getting at least a little profit off of it!

The art of war

(5 stars)

the book gives a very vivid depiction of warfare. The author illusrates a great understanding of how to succesfullly win a war while also revealing how certain decisions and tactics contribute to unsuccessful warfare. Great book, highly recommended.

Great insight into the past strategies

It is amazing the level of achievement they could have done during those times. It is important to acknowledge the level of philosophy they have integrated. Would definitely recommend listening this book.

Pleasant speaking voice

(4.5 stars)

The book itself wasn't that interesting but it gave me some more knowledge nevertheless. It was read by a woman with a pleasant voice.

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.
