Wasted Space

The last chunk of the book is, as far as I can tell, several chapters of nothing but a flute playing. Not sure I understand why... but seems like padding to make this particular version of this classic text longer and therefore more complete.

Great book but...

It was full of great techniques and strategy. I can definitely use this in my life day to day in dealing with office politics. This book was good for the first few chapters, but the last 20 or so were just Japanese jazz flutes and drum solos. No words, just instrumentals... Yeah..
