Amazing that a book written so many years ago go could still give so much practical advice for today - not just for war but for business. Very short listen with much good advice.
You got to hear it. Perhaps the book is just as simple as it sounds. But in my mind, I think the lessens are about how to repair my finances. It is a Master telling me how to defeat the enemy, (financial problems). Perhaps to some, it is just “how to kick you ass”. Perhaps others, how to defeat the enemy (where the enemy is the trouble with [fill in the blank]. It is also a curios piece. It also is quick and uses economy when composing a phrase. A lot of bang for the buck.
At last a version which eliminates most of the interminable notes and comments which
make the author's thoughts so hard to follow in other versions. Amazing how short
the book is when most of that is removed.
Excellent, insightful book, good reading and cheap! Can't beat that combo.
Some would probably find it odd that a female would read a book such as The Art of War, however anyone who leaves the comfort of their home and takes on the world to earn a living would likely find the concepts of the book to be insightful. Am I comparing the strategies of war to the working world? YES. Read the book then watch the patterns of those around you, you will see what I mean.
The book is a quick listen and worth the time.
I paid just a couple bucks for this book, and I feel I got my money's worth. The reader is competent, but unexciting, which doesn't help with the dry text. Still, for the price this is a can't miss.
Love to read, and Audible has made the two-hour daily commute enjoyable!
So many people and leadership books have quote "The Art of War" that I felt it deserved a read.
Now I can nod sagely when somebody quotes it. As far as what I got for leading others - I did get one gem - The Five Dangerous Faults - Recklessness, Cowardice, hasty Temper, Delicacy of Honor (shame), and Over Solicitude for Men.
Horrible narrator. It was a blessing it only lasted 1 hour, 16 minutes, and only cost about $2.
When I was listening to this book (the third version of it) a teen age boy who was near me said this is a women's manual of how to defeat men. I look at it more as a manual of how to conduct one's life. This is a great manual for managers and executives. My first ready was at the direction of an executive. Here you will learn how to change your thinking into a winning thinking model.
This reads like an antiquated and ambiguous combat manual. I was expecting more on ancient tactics that might be applicable to current situations. Lots of repetition and contradictions.
Less ambiguity, less contradictions.
No. His slight Boston accent is grating over time. Also the echoes from the room he recorded in are distracting.
I'm an aging intellectual glorying in the Mojave desert.
The content of this book cries out for note-taking, underlining, and pauses for reflection. I wouldn't choose this in audible format again. It's not the fault of the narrator or Sun Tzu, it's just not good material to try to absorb solely by listening.
