This audio book is a very thick 'document' in that the use of the very direct, very thought provoking comparisons of the western actions and history thrown into the usage and history of some of the other commentary's bring the clarity of intent Master Sun was giving to those of his place and time to a new understanding. I feel that I am more able to understand and digest this document as it was intended by its author (or authors depending on your belief or understanding.) All in all a wonderful collection of thought and explanation, although in order to grasp it all, the book itself needs to be in place or at hand to use for the many reference point given.
This book is a wonderful outline of the ever-changing environment with which we work and live our lives. There are things that are common sense to most but written in a way that hit between the eyes and are hard to ignore, even if we want to ignore them. Well done.
This book is the epitome of the individual that has had to fight for everything they want and have in life. The message is clear, the direction is precise. You would have to be an idiot not to see the message here. I enjoyed this book very much. It is one of the books that will be a repeat listen.
look. if you are going over to china, hve limited time to get a class in, this instruction is the best thing going. You get the cultural essentials minus the classroom seat. Great if you have a half hour commute.
There are many different applicable ideas here. This book seems to be an outline of what we should focus on, instead of how to apply the focus, or how to focus on the line item. There is also a strong undertow of political standing that I do now agree with. I fear this undertow has brought a direct and forceful opinion I have not been able to overlook. Perhaps the rating is lower then the content would allow, but if the author allows their political views to come out in the writing or content, they will also allow those views to be scrutinized as part of the book.
this book is an example of the timeless lesson that life has bestowed to some for the rest of us to follow. It's only drawback is it's dated examples and comparisons. These are very small downfalls, especially as the author wrote his guidelines during a time we only read about ourselves. This creates a detachment of sorts, however, with some understanding, it is simple to take the lessons here and apply them to life.
