Sintesi dell'editore

Sun Tzu's iconic treatise, The Art of War, has been studied by military historians and strategists for centuries. The concepts he recommends remain as effective and his advice as perceptive today as it has ever been. However, The Art of War is certainly not only of use to individuals in the military. The principles he lays out are remarkably applicable to a wide variety of professions and situations, from business to politics to everyday interpersonal relationships.

This edition includes the full, unabridged version of The Art of War. In addition, it includes clear yet extensive study tools and discussion questions to help listeners more easily understand this classic work.

War is coming... and I intend to be victorious!

Tensions are rising between my neighbor and I. Earlier this week I caught his horse stealing apples from my tree again. Then yesterday morning I saw his cat chasing mine. These are just a few recent examples from a long list of transgressions that are unacceptable! Earlier today I attempted diplomacy but he just laughed in my face and said my complaints are "petty" and told me to "stop wasting his time." Right now he's out on his tractor. I think he might be erecting some sort of a barrier. War is coming, my friends... and I intend to be victorious!

According to Sun Tzu I shouldn't attack until my victory is assured, so I've begun the planning process. My neighbor's position is well fortified so I will need to draw him out (this is what Sun Tzu recommends; siege should only be used as a last resort). The chapter on employing fire gave me the perfect idea. I'm going to begin my offensive by lighting his barn on fire to draw him out...

Sorry about that. You're not here to read about my troubles. You want to know if Sun Tzu's ancient treatise on military strategy, The Art of War, is worth your time. Surprisingly, the strategies laid out in The Art of War are applicable in many aspects of life (especially if you have deviant neighbors). I found this edition particularly helpful since it provides a couple thoughtful discussion questions at the end of each chapter, some of which help you think about the concepts in a non military context. The narration was clear and appropriate for a book of this nature. Honestly, though, this book is short and concise. If you want to get the most from it you're going to need to listen to it more than once.

I received this audiobook for free in return for providing my honest and unbiased review.
