    Story
    "Should be refunded for this - do not buy!"

    50+mins of music. The story takes less than 45 minutes to listen to and then there's nearly/over an hour of music. If I'd have known this, I doubt I would've purchased.

    Story
    "Indispensable"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of War to be better than the print version?

    No, however I have listened to it a dozen or more times. I use the print version for reference weekly.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read (listen) for any student of leadership.

    Story
    "Half was music and half was obviois"

    Generalizations in abstract terms. Summary: be strategic, disciplined, authentic, sly, patient, execute fast, treat your people well, do what is right, ignore your boss when she is wrong, stay on budget, use other people's resources when possible, be unpredictable and predictable.

    "Putin is an Obvious Student"
    Any additional comments?

    It's amazing how much of Russia's recent behaviors and conduct fall squarely within the guidelines for successful warfare described in this Book. Too bad Obama is so ignorant and incompetent, the US should really being applying these principles to the problems that confound us globally.

    Story
    "Fascinating insight into a great leader's mind"
    What did you love best about The Art of War?

    The way the information was broken down. No long, winding explanations of the steps Sun Tzu believed were necessary to be successful. Just small, bite-sized nuggets of insightful information and strategy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Appreciating the fact that information in "The Art of War" is still used today, thousands of years later.


    Have you listened to any of Mike Borris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't so I can't credibly make any comparisons between his works.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No real extreme reactions. A lot of "wows" when hearing the strategies.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe this book is a must for those in the cutthroat world of business and athletics. My work is not in those arenas so there aren't a great deal of ideas that I can utilize. It was a fascinating listen nonetheless.

    Story
    "Edition narrated by Mike Borris"

    Shows length as 1:50. Text is about half the length. When you get to about chapter 25, annoying flute music starts playing, and that is all there is to the end of the book.

    "Really"

    Is this really the book people talk about? Most of this information is simple to come up with. nothing ground breaking.
