    The Strategic Thinking Trilogy contains the best worldwide books on strategy: A Book of 5 Rings by Mushashi, The Art of War by Sun Tzu, The Prince by Machiavelli and an introduction/summary of On War by Von Clausevitz. A must listen for all listeners interested in history, culture, military subjects, business strategy, and strategy in general.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would switch narrators.


    Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?

    I would be willing to listen to other books by the same *authors* but not the same narrator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Well, the narrator was unclear, hesitating and sometimes sounded like he was trying to find the right words, f.ex. in the introduction to "The art of war" and "The book of 5 rings". The audio quality is like he was using a Fisher-Price microphone in a tin can.
    Also, the narrator mispronounced some words, so that I had to rewind to get his meaning.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel ripped off for paying $4 for this book....

    If you could go back in time...and witness any event...where would you go? When Dr. Tom Greenbaum faces that question after successfully discovering the secret to time travel, he knows the time, place, and event he will witness: the death and failed resurrection of Jesus Christ. Dr. David Goodman, Tom's colleague and closest friend follows Tom into the past, attempting to avert a time-space catastrophe, but forces beyond their control toss them into a dangerous end game.

    Story

    Will not read from this author again. Quantum physics and fundamentalist religious bullshit don't mix well. I suspect the author is a young earth creationist, due to the travel to "The Flood" in the ending. The sci-fi in the book was okay, but the implausible story around what happens on their travels ruins it.
    The atheist is a major straw man and I felt the book was just preaching Christianity.

    Please don't recommend this book to an atheist in an attempt to convert them to Christianity.
