Publisher's Summary

This Chinese treatise on war was written by Sun Tzu in the 6th century B.C. Each one of the 13 chapters is devoted to a different aspect of warfare, making it the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time. Studied by generals from Napoleon to Rommel, it is still one of the most influential works on the subject and is required reading in most military academies around the world. Although it was meant to be a practical guide to warfare in the age of chariots, this seminal work on the philosophy of successful leadership is as applicable to contemporary business as it is to war, and has become increasingly popular among today's corporate and political leaders.

It was OK

Honestly it is a good book, but I don't really enjoy the numbering, it takes away some from the flow of the book. The numbering does not really make much sense for an audio book, but i do enjoy the addition of external stories that have to do with the art of war, and particularly the fact that it is read by a different person and is explained as t why it is relevant

Review by an Infantryman

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was time SPENT. Neither good nor bad.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Tactics and thought process are great. The the way the book reads makes it a little cumbersome.

Did Don Hagen and Victoria Gordon do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Didn't finish the book. Couldn't say.

Do you think The Art of War needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
