Publisher's Summary

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.

Didn't like it

First, the book: it must be the most overrated book in the history of mankind!! I didn't read it before and was really excited but was kind of let down.
And , the narrator: it was as if she is trying to put me to sleep.

Sorry, didn't like it :(

A wonderful new version of a classic

This my new favorite version of "The Art of War." Escalona's understated narration feels like a perfect match to the subtleties of Sun Tzu's masterpiece, a tone that I think is typically beyond the range of most American narrators. Given the length (a little more than two hours) and the quality, you might just want to find a comfortable chair near the fire, close your eyes, and listen all the way through in one sitting.
