"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)

Reviews

i loved it

(5 stars)

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!

Relevant and Succinct

(4 stars)

The Art of War is a straightforward, well considered, guide, which places the reader under no illusions as to the importance of a quick and effective campaign and the use of local intelligence. Considering how long this book has been in existence, it seems surprising that so little of its advice is heeded today, except in the world of business, which is a shame really, as treating business as warfare just shows how little we value collaboration and collective working.

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.

Foundations of Warefare

(4.5 stars)

Inspired to first read byTupac Shakur the mid 90s and the numerous mentions from business leaders. Sun Tzu frames warfare in a big picture and gets you to think how smaller components of warfare can lead to success or failure.

Great insight into the past strategies

(5 stars)

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.
