    I ended up just listening to this book while I was working. Since my work requires reading and writing all day long, and I was still able to follow the story, there wasn't a lot of substance that required close attention.

    I got the book because I have liked other things by Weber, but ouch. Next time I will pay more attention to other reviews.

    This is the complete text of The Art of War, one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world. It has also been applied to business and managerial strategies. The tranaslaton, by Lionel Giles is considered one of the best available. This unabridged editon of The Art of War includes only the most essential translator's notes so that the words and thoughts of Sun Tzu may be easily understood.

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    "It was an okay read"
    Overall

    While listening to this book I found myself alternating between being into the story line and letting my mind wander. The story was fine, and overall I enjoyed the book, but I don't like having to work so hard to maintain concentration.
