This version, is differentiated by a) the price; and b) Tom Butler-Browdon’s excellent introduction which frames the relevance of this manual for the modern reader, provides information about the historical context, and characterises the most successful warfare outcomes.
The size makes it commuter friendly as well as an easy task to finish. Given the brief and focussed nature of the text, it is not a book that lasts – but luckily the massive scope for applications leave enough food for thought that the book to have a lingering aftertaste.
The fact the this books is widely read today, goes to show the continued relevance of it.The principles of the military strategy could easily be applied in self development, business interactions, military thinking, legal strategy and much more.I have read and owned other paperback versions but this new hardback was worth investing in and the introduction by Tom Butler- Bowden made it an irresistible version to own.The part one of the book comprises the thirteen chapters of the art of war and the part two comprises the saying of Sun Tzu. An inspirational book with a timeless relevance in our present-day to day lives just at it was in the 5th century BC when it was written.
The book is simple and short enough to pick up and read the whole thing in one go. Every time you do though, you will discover something new or discover a new perspective on something you've previously read.
Invest in the hardback - you are going to want to read this enjoyable book many times.
I bought from the Amazon seller "Lowplex" for just over five pounds plus a couple of quid P&P which is around half the price that Amazon itself are asking (at the time of writing) which just goes to show how much you can save sometimes by checking the other Amazon sellers rather than just hitting the "Add to Basket" button straight away.
The book content itself goes without any need of my review... it's been around for two and a half thousand years, so if you don't know, or haven't heard, how good it is by now, you probably never will... This review is purely about this version and it's amazingly high quality binder. I'd advise you to buy two if you're buying it as a gift, because once you see it, you'll probably want one for your own bookshelf.
