I am an enthusiast of historical figures, specifically, military figures and men of enlightenment. So, naturally, Sun Tzu's "The Art Of War" was a must read for me. With the original written in ancient chinese i found it surprisingly difficult to find a single english translation that was without a Thesis from the Author; I would personally like to read the book and make my own interpretations without being influenced by someone elses opinions at the end of each paragraph and would definetaly recommend this edition for any like minded people.
The only downside i would highlight is that much of the original script was not or could not be translated, and the result is 13 short chapters, readable in a day or two - although the amount of wisdom of warfare and life overall that is in this short book is astonishingly so, that i would recommend everyone read it at least once in their lifetime.
I hope this review has been helpful to those of you that are considering purchasing this book. Please rate kindly.
