Eh

The music that lasted for multiple chapters at the end was not worth it.

Music?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book is good until they start playing music as filler or something to eat time.

Classic comes to life

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!

  • Story

It's essentially a several minute long summary.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It being an actual book instead of a summary with hours of music afterwards.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sun Tzu again?

Sun Tzu is great, whoever released this garbage is not.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It's a tight summary of an actual book.

Any additional comments?

I would enjoy getting the money spent on this credited back to me.

A worthwhile read

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.

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.

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.
