I love this book. Read it several times and I always enjoy it. Educational and well worth reading. The narrator did a great job. It was easy and fun to listen to.

Tensions are rising between my neighbor and I. Earlier this week I caught his horse stealing apples from my tree again. Then yesterday morning I saw his cat chasing mine. These are just a few recent examples from a long list of transgressions that are unacceptable! Earlier today I attempted diplomacy but he just laughed in my face and said my complaints are "petty" and told me to "stop wasting his time." Right now he's out on his tractor. I think he might be erecting some sort of a barrier. War is coming, my friends... and I intend to be victorious!
According to Sun Tzu I shouldn't attack until my victory is assured, so I've begun the planning process. My neighbor's position is well fortified so I will need to draw him out (this is what Sun Tzu recommends; siege should only be used as a last resort). The chapter on employing fire gave me the perfect idea. I'm going to begin my offensive by lighting his barn on fire to draw him out...
Sorry about that. You're not here to read about my troubles. You want to know if Sun Tzu's ancient treatise on military strategy, The Art of War, is worth your time. Surprisingly, the strategies laid out in The Art of War are applicable in many aspects of life (especially if you have deviant neighbors). I found this edition particularly helpful since it provides a couple thoughtful discussion questions at the end of each chapter, some of which help you think about the concepts in a non military context. The narration was clear and appropriate for a book of this nature. Honestly, though, this book is short and concise. If you want to get the most from it you're going to need to listen to it more than once.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
This was a pretty good study guide, but it could be used more widely because it really made you think about The Art Of War, and the use it could have today. It was very interesting. C. J. McAllister was a good narrator, clear and concise, but slightly too slow for me.
