Publisher's Summary

The Art of War is the most famous and longest-lasting book on the practice of war. The book does not mince words: war is about winning; it is not a gentleman's game; it is about using every means at one's disposal to tip the odds in one's favor. Of the centuries, this book has been used by military figures, war departments, business people, educators, and politicians, to name a few. This is the original work without additional editorial comment.

Aweful narration kills the spirit of Sun Tzu!

If you love your ears, go try finding a different narrator as I did! This is bad

Reader killed an otherwise great book.

I have read Art of War several times in the past and decided to add it to my audible library so I could listen at work. Although I did finish the book the reader made the experience nearly unbearable. With the added " Sun Tzu said" after every few sentences. Literally killed an otherwise great story.

Great book, horrible narration

The Art of War is a classic and contains great information. Unfortunately the delivery of the book is underwhelming and of unacceptable quality from what should be expected for Audible content.

Read the book

The narrator ruined it for me. His accent was distracting and hard to understand at times.

Good book Bad Narrator

The book is solid but this should’ve never been released with this narrator. If I wanted to hear someone stumble over reading I could’ve bought the book and recorded myself lol.
Seriously though, they need to re-do this whole audiobook. Luckily it’s a short a read because it’s very cringeworthy.

Interesting, however...

Really not a fan of the narrator. There are numerous hiccups and pauses that shouldn't be there and gives a feeling they forgot to edit

Give it a chance then it's very good

This is an ancient manuscript that is read very plainly. after getting used to the readers voice this is a very compelling piece of history that can be listened to again and again.

Word switcher

This guy likes to go pretty quickly which made him get his words mixed up on a lot of things. He skips a lot of parts. However the book was full read so that's about all you can really say 🤷🏼‍♂️
