Surprise change

Any additional comments?

The actual voice of narration is NOT the one in the sample nor is it as good. Although the voice in the actual narration was ok, the voice in the sample was what got me to buy it.

A Mandatory Book for All

A bass teacher I had the pleasure of studying under suggested I pick up a copy of “The Art of War”. That was seventeen years ago and since that time has been a fixture in my stacks. I tend to give this one away each time I cross paths with one who needs the introduction. These encounters have taken place fairly often and as a result I’ve owned several different translations. The last hard copy was purchased shortly after I was informed that my services as a husband would no longer be required.

If you are one of that reads and writes in-depth critiques on various translations then this review will be of little use. However, if you are on the same quest as I, that being to find the perfect recorded reading of “The Art of War”, then this may review may help you to decide between all the ones available. The content is solid so are my opinions will be focused on the narrator.

First and foremost, I really liked the narrator because he sounds brutal and speaks with authority. I enjoyed listening to the guy and plan to revisit his reading several more times. However, this is not the holy recording of Sun Tzu. It is way too freaking fast.

As you know or soon find out, this book is heavy and damn near every single word counts. That being the case, the narrator has way too rapid of an attack for my mind. It’s good as a quick listen and it’s cheap which, to be honest, was the main reason for my purchase. Just be prepared to stop and rewind many many times and if you pick this one. It’s kind of like inorganic chemistry, if you daydream for a second you will miss something extremely vital to your success and possibly your livelihood itself.

Half book is music & adds nothing

The spoken content was very educational. The Music was not and adds nothing of use.
The make is poorly designed
