The man who read this did very well and I found it quit information. But the entire last half of the book was music. A bad modern recreation of traditional Chinese music that may or may not have been written about war. So don't buy this book but look for the author. This is the first time this type of thing has happened to me in audible and I have listened to more than 200 hours with them so don't take this as a bash on audible!
Reading, the arts and physical activity clarify, explain, illustrate, and interpret life’s goods and bads.
The Art of War, Written by: Sun Tzu, Narrated by: Mike Borris. This is an ancient Chinese military treatise dating from the 5th century BC, and the memoirs of a masterful general. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics. You are taught strategies and then provided histories of how the elemental tactics were deployed for the overall stratagem.
One must be interested in learning about the competitive nature of life, contending therein and winning to find value in the memoir. If you see worth in such leaning then this is a study you can read and enjoy as it has much valued perceptions on combat and therein life.
This is a study, akin in depth and strategic importance as is The Prince, by Niccolo Machiavelli. You will read each and consider and return in a few years and reread and continue to learn more each visit. Its knowledge is endless.
I enjoy this classic over and over. It's simple in presentation but powerful information. Even if you have read it give it a listen. I love the journey my mind takes every time I hear it!
It being an actual book instead of a summary with hours of music afterwards.
Sun Tzu is great, whoever released this garbage is not.
It's a tight summary of an actual book.
I would enjoy getting the money spent on this credited back to me.
Overall a great book. Some of the concepts in the book can be applied to everyday interactions in dealing with people. Helpful in creating a greater sense of mindfulness & being able to manage relationships more strategically.
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.
