"The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time. The Art of War is one of the oldest and most famous studies of strategy and has had a huge influence on both military planning and beyond. The Art of War has also been applied, with much success, to business and managerial strategies." (summary from Wikipedia)

well written book by Sun Tsu. I really love that the writer knows what he is saying and isnt bothered about filling number of pages, hence saves the reader from unnecessary elaborations which modern writers do to make the book thicker. and the well writong is well accompanied by clear and precise reading by the lady. enjoyed listening this book, Highly recommend

I avoided this book for years. I couldn't see any relevance to me but I was surprised by the hermetic thinking and content as well as practical uses in life to this day. It's a famous classic for a reason. Even if you never plan to go to war, this is worth a read.

I liked it. I plan on writing a novel/story that has elements of war and tactics in it. So in that context, it was an awesome read. It helped me realize that there are certain elements I should take in to account when writing those scenes.

Very clear

(5 stars)

It was such a nice experience to listen the voice, because it was very clear, so it was easy to follow the reading. It is actually a great start with classics. The reading is so interesting and I can say I have learned some important lessons about life. Too much to think.

Really good reading

The narrator has a perfectly clear reading voice and makes the information easy to listen to and digest. This is an interesting book, and worth a listen as it's only a short passage
