"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)

Easy to read and Enjoyable

(5 Sterne)

This book is full of wisdom that is useful for everyone. The tactics Sun Zu says are useful for a general can be used by everybody in their everyday life.

Thought Provoking

(5 Sterne)

Very thought provoking book! I had trouble understanding it all so I will definitely reread or hear it again. There are many valuable principles taught in it that really got me thinking about my own life. The author is a pure genius. The reader did a great job as well!

Well read and easy to understand.

Title says it all. The reading was clear and at a comfortable pace. The subject matter was fantastic in it's own right and I can definitely see how wisdom of Sun Zi could be used in everyday life. Highly recommended.

Pretty literal

(5 Sterne)

I was surprised it how literally the subject of war was portrayed. This book would be very useful about a century ago, when the the world was plagued with medieval warfare. It would also help your Total War game. Overall, very interesting read.

I am normally not an avid reader, and may read a book for a few chapters then get disinterested. But this one I didn't want to stop until the last page. A MUST READ!!

Very interesting. I can only imagine the success of the tactics and strategies discussed. I see many ways this book can be applied to other aspects of life and dealings with people and of oneself as apposed purely to war.

Good narration

(5 Sterne)

This is the first audio book I have heard completely. And I feel like it is better than reading. The voice of the narrator is clear. The art of war is a masterpiece.
