"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) (1 hr 12 min)

Nicely read. It’s rather dry text to read, factual and informational. The reader did a good job. It was good to hear correct pronunciation of Chinese words!

(5 stars)

Thanks Moira enjoyed the reading very much, needs to be listened to a few times. I haven’t heard the text since the 1980’s. Can’t get the App to work on the iPhone now.

A warfare guide that is still relevant

(5 stars)

Recommend the book as it hold so many truths even today. It's an easy book to read and very interestingly written for those who like this type of literature.

(5 stars)

A very insightful and in-detail account of how to win your battles. This is a very short read and something everybody should give themselves the pleasure of reading. At first glance it seems like a strange ancient war book, but don’t judge a book by its cover. This book gives wisdom that can be applied to everyday life.

A Masterpiece

(5 stars)

A short concise look at some of history's most important military strategies. I feel that I need to listen to it twice because there was so much detail in such a short book. This book contains very important knowledge for humanity.

Ancient wisdom, still applicable.

(5 stars)

So many emotions reading this book. The bravery of the soldier, the burden of the general, the pointlessness of war. All lessons still unlearned, regardless of the battlefield. Wonderfully reading from Moira Fogarty. Thank you.

These are the Fundamentals of Combat

Every leader of every nation needs these fundamentals. For without the military there is no nation.
