This small book boils clever warfare down to a few simple lessons. (These are later discussed to add depth to the book and give context - a true bonus) Many Japanese say "business is war" which is why explains why many so many corporate people have read this book. Common sense, which is not so common, is timeless. Thus, so are the lessons in the book. Well read, very well re-explained in case you didn't understand it all. This belongs on any true reader's MUST READ list. (It isn't even very long.) Don't kid yourself just hearing it won't automatically get you a raise or a coveted position, but it might get your mind thinking along the truly sneaky ways any good general should think. (Many people are naturals at that kind of nastiness without need of some book.) If nothing it is a wonderful bit of history about a truly timeless subject, war. Oh yes, well read and produced! (My "code word" for "no-gross artifact-of-voice-narration-mouth-noises.) It is one of those books that the "well read" should to be able to speak of with pride.

Interesting from a historic perspective. The first part contains Sun Tzu's 13 principles. The rest of the book talks about historic battles (mostly Chinese battles) and the application of these principles.
