Summary:

Written in China over two thousand years ago, The Art of War provides the first known attempt to formulate a rational basis for the planning and conduct of military operations.

This complete reading of the classic text by Sun Tzu brings to life the timeless strategic principles of the ancient art of warfare. It soon becomes apparent how this book is still applicable today, and not just for military operations, but to so many other aspects of life.

    It's was hard to actually concentrate on the content of this book because of the narrator. He sounds like he's doing a bad rendition of a movie trailer for each sentence, it's annoying.

    Great Book. There are some complaints regarding the narrator being tedious. Its a free audiibook guys, common. But yes, feedback is a good thing. I would suggest you to listen at 1.5x speed.

    The reader's voice sounds like he is doing a parody of a bad beer commercial for Saturday Night Live --- except without all the comedy. It may be a ground-breaking piece of historical literature, but I couldn't get past the reader's voice. Plus, it belabors the obvious over and over -- attack your opponent's weak spot -- DUH!!!!

    A book I read (or listen too) over and over again. As a military officer and a business professional these metaphors work in so many situations. Highly recommended to all LEADERs, no matter capacity.

    I’ve listened to every chapter from a different version of this book, which featured three different narrators and occasionally some soft oriental music, all good, but I just couldn’t last more than 3 minutes of this narrators extremely irritating style; I shall avoid all other titles read by the same.

    This is the hand book for businessmen and how corporate tactics can be formed for take overs using these formulas. That being said it’s fun to read and see where one can formulate tactics to use in everyday life. As we all know it’s tough out there. Feels like you to war sometimes just to make it through the grocery store.

    One of the great books of history, such a shame the narration wouldn't even allow me to finish listening.

  • Chris S.

    interesting. some parts were unintentionally funny due to the literal descriptions used. "there is a pass that the enemy knows and they would be able to ambush you there, this is called a contemptuous pass". yeah, no kidding Mr. Tzu haha

  • Chris Dezell

    I feel that I listened to a 90s action movie trailer for over an hour because of the narrator.

  • Kainster

    I’ve read the book before and the Narrator did a much better job of conveying the intensity of the writers points then my own inner monologue could. All and all really good book for the knowledge

    It seems like the narrator’s style isn’t for everyone, but I enjoy his tone, pace, and style. I have this downloaded and will sometimes listen to this for a few minutes before falling asleep. I’ll probably branch out to other books read by Michael Scott as well, looks like he’s done quite a few other titles I’d enjoy. The content in The Art of War is sometimes difficult for me to understand - I am a visual learner so I’d prefer to listen whole studying maps of different battles through history for examples of the different types of ground and strategies, to help me to really take in all of the information...and at the end of the day I’m often too tired to go find that kind of documentation, so I usually default to wondering what these situations would look like. The clarity of the reading does help with this though. A great listen overall.

  • Charles P.

    good knowledge

  • James R.

    Complex and insightful, especially considering when it was written. Takes intense concentration to understand meaning. Narration was a little intense.

    Well narrated. Classic wisdom.

    this can translate into everything in life.

    The narrator sounds like the usual voice from trailers to adventure movies. Really annoying and hard to understand.

    cant take the narrator serious....

  • Ighodaro Odighizuwa

    I cannot stand the way this guy is reading this book!! And because of that I could not even finish the first chapter.

    A well crafted & uniquely useful resource indeed! Risk and reward!

  • Unknown Unknown

    Very useful and interesting book. One I will revisit multiple times.

  • Adrian Davis

    annoying reader's voice . Seems he's being over dramatic

  • Adam Teckman

    The narrator speaks in an over-the-top bad movie trailer voice. Its really annoying. However, it is a great book!

  • John Klicka

    Man, the narrator just gets on your nerves. Good book though!
