    Description

    The Art of War is a book that provides the readers with key insights into military strategies that emerged from the Eastern civilization and how they can be applied to modern-day situations.

    Summary Of The Book

    The Art of War revolves around military strategy, being one of the oldest of its kind. It is regarded one among the most crucial books that have emerged from the Eastern civilization. Tzu emphasizes on positional strategy and the fact that position is influenced by objective conditions in the physical environment. He also tackles another factor, which is the subject view of actors in that particular setting.

    Through the course of this book, Tzu helps the readers gain insights into the things they need to understand about themselves as well as their enemies. He explains that if an individual understands their capacity and that of their enemies, they won’t need to fear the outcome of a hundred battles. However, if an individual doesn’t realize who they are and who their enemy is, it will cause them to succumb to failure.

    Tzu emphasized on planning and how it works in a controlled situation. However, he noted that competing plans clash in a changing environment, resulting in unprecedented events. Tzu realized that leaders set the tone, therefore, he has spoken about the ideal qualities of a leader in detail. He also explains that supreme excellence doesn’t entail fighting and winning over enemies, but breaking the resistance of an enemy sans fighting.

    This is an audio version of The Art of War, read by Rashid Raza and released by Think Ink Media Inc. in 2010.

      • The legend goes that Sun Tzu was born into minor nobility in what is now Shandong, a part of China north of Shanghai that became famous for Confucius and the really tasty Shandong Chicken. He was named Sun Wu at the time of birth. He wrote a military treatise in order to get noticed and hired by royalty. It worked.
        Sun Wu expanded his 13 chapter Art of War into 82 chapters and trained the army. Eventually he broke the peace by invading the southern state of Yue. Other conflicts ensured but although his troops were once outnumbered 30,000 to 200,000 he was always victorious. Many successes followed and continued after his death. Some considered his death to be another of his deceptions.

    The content of the book is good, but not very interesting.

    Crisp Narration

    The audio is divided into chapters, each with an approximate 5-8 minute run time. The content is crisp, to the point and narrated well, but for one chapter where a chapter is abruptly cut short. The content would perhaps appeal to those who savor combat strategy stories, for this is what it actually offers in some detail.

    I had hoped the money spent would buy more hours of playback, but it does not. That, coupled with some 3-4 day delivery period, the whole experience has thus been not enti...
