Publisher's Summary

Sun Tzu said: The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected. The art of war, then, is governed by five constant factors, to be taken into account in one's deliberations, when seeking to determine the conditions obtaining in the field. These are: (1) The Moral Law; (2) Heaven; (3) Earth; (4) The Commander; (5) Method and discipline. The Moral Law causes the people to be in complete accord with their ruler, so that they will follow him regardless of their lives, undismayed by any danger.

About what you'd expect

Any additional comments?

The Art of War, by Sun Tzu, was written somewhen during the 5th Century BCE, so this is just a straight reading of a common translation. Joseph Kent unfortunately did not seem to have any inflection on the words, headings, or sub-headings.

Since the actual text has passed out of copyright domain, you can read this book anywhere. If you need to hear an audio version, I'd recommend looking at another narrator.
