    "To win without fighting is best," Sun Tzu said. For the Chinese philosopher/general war was synchronic with life. Tzu viewed the world as a network of combat zones where the stakes were high and struggle was the primary mode of being, where no one was to be trusted, and survival depended on nothing less than unconditional victory. Actors Ron Silver and B.D. Wong narrate this 2,500-year-old work of wisdom that continues to guide and inspire people of all cultures, teaching the principles of strategy required in everything from sports, to business, to affairs of the heart. Augmented by commentary and anecdotes, this audio edition maintains the pure, near-poetic tone of the original.

    "The Art of War"
    Overall

    I have read "The Art of War" several times and thought it would be nice to have a copy that I could listen to when driving. I was discouraged when the reader could not pronounce the author's name correctly. I was also surprised at the poor quality of the recording itself. Take the time and read the book, it will serve you much better.

    Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty contains Harvey's gold-chip advice, accumulated over a lifetime of business success, on how to build and maintain the network you need. Harvey guarantees you'll never be more than a phone call away from a person in the position to help you get what you want - whether it's the job opportunity of a lifetime or a lifetime partner, the sales prospect of your dreams or the career advice you've only dreamed of. Harvey shows you how to create a network of trusted, valuable contacts that is worth its weight in platinum.

    Thomas says: "Very Good"
    "One of the best networking books"
    Overall

    I have listen to other networking books, but this is the best one yet. Harvey Mackay does an excellent job of describing basic techniques for networking. His examples hit home with me when I think back to situations and how I could have handled it differently.
    If there is only one book on networking that you buy, I would suggest "Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty"

    Consciousness, teaches Fred Kofman, is the capacity to observe, choose, and act in accord with your values. And "conscious business" means using that ability at every level of your work: in being aware of the needs of others and expressing your own needs; in seeing the hidden emotional obstacles that may be holding your team back; in making good decisions under pressure; and even in delving into such spiritual questions as "Who am I?" and "What is my real purpose here?"

    "Nice, but to long"
    Overall

    This book is filled with useful information, it just take 9 hours to find it. I listen to audio books every day to and from work and this is the first one that I was not able to finish. The book seemed to drag on and on. I would put this lower on you wish list for now.

    The audio that shows how to get the job done and deliver results...whether you're running an entire company or in your first management job. Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan, who Jack Welch calls "a great practitioner and an insightful theorist," collaborate on a "compelling business story of 'how to get it done.'"

    David says: "the triumph of bad design over sound contact"
    "Great book for all."
    Overall

    Being new to the management ranks I found this book to provide guidelines that all managers should use. When talking with seasoned managers their comments were "this is all common sense." Yes, it is common sense, but it is about using your common sense to get projects done. That is what this book points out to the listener.
