The Art of War (Penguin Classics)

Now I am ready to declare war on anyone, the insights into the Chinese maxim of war is facinating, the lack of compassion and mercy to defeated opponents is breathtakingly refreshing . Not to sound too bloodthirsty but it may be a thought the western nations fighting extremist should adopt.

This book contains a lot of wisdom. Makes you see life and what you're doing in life from a different. very strategic and wise perspective. Content by Sun Tzu is quite fascinating, but commentary of commentators is so overwhelmingly difficult in vocabulary as if the difficult vocabulary of the translations was not hard enough.

Haven't finished this yet but I understand why the most successful football coaches read it.

Exactly what it’s supposed to be. A timeless classic. Arrived perfectly & on time.

Deceptively philosophically deep.
Needs to read and re read, in order to grasp the analogous nature of 2,000 yr old Chinese General philosophy of fighting wars, applied to philosophy of living in todays society!!!

This book is simply a summary of bullet points and not the real thing. I recommend visiting a good book store or looming further through Amazon to find the real thing.

The Kindle version is poor. The layout of the text alone is baffling and hard to follow. Once you've read the 13 chapters the author then rambles on in a way that's so boring I just switched off through most of it and then gave up reading it. It says 80 pages, but it isn't. The interesting stuff may be 80 pages, but the boring stuff last A LOT longer.

This is an excellent read, although it lacks the finesse of Machiavelli's "The Prince" its principles are still sound and work reading on a regular basis to get the best out of it
