The timeless original text; required listening for anyone interested in strategy. This is a work of subtlety and paradox that shows the way to a clean and aesthetic triumph. Sun Tzu insisted that a skilled warrior observes, calculates, outwits, and outmaneuvers an adversary, and in doing so averts the destruction of battle.

I thought 2 hours would be a more comprehensive look at the art of war, but no it's not that. The other half is an hour/longer zen soundtrack with most of the tracks sounding alike eventually.
They fill time with about 10 tracks worth of pan flute music after the content ends. Still worth a dollar though, I guess.
"this isn't an audio book it's a pamphlet"
the wind pipes, this story is about an hour long, the rest is pipe music.
its no reflection on Sun Tzu,
"About as useful as a fortune cookie"
People who enjoy abstractions, pretend war play and have some time to kill. This is as serious answer as I can bring myself to provide, flower power images come to mind.
Narrator was OK
There are no characters in this book (is this a metaphysical question?)
Don't buy this book - it requires serious help for comprehension. Rather purchase a commented version or one that ventures interpretations such as The Art of War for Women.
