The words held within this audiobook, where written over two and a half thousand years ago, ring just as true today as they did in fifth century BC China. Best-selling author and master storyteller James Clavell (Shōgun) brought The Art of War to greater prominence in the West in the 1980s and showed how the book’s instruction was applicable on a smaller scale and could be used for personal betterment. Clavell’s wonderfully evocative foreword and helpful notes throughout the text guide the listener through preparations and battle plans, correct use of weapons and knowing when to fight - and when not to fight.
With a deep understanding of both strategy and human nature, this military treatise illustrates the fine craft of knowing one’s enemy and oneself. From military officers to CEOs to those simply looking to be more powerful in their own life, The Art of War has become required reading for anyone seeking a path of success through the modern world.

A gift from the vaults of history
Pretty wild how war can be broken down into such incredibly easy to understand nuggets and categories. I grasp why this book is so revered and am grateful to be living in a time where it's contents can be consumed purely out of interest and not because I need to wage war. Totally worth the time
