indispensable

Sun Tzu's Art of War is an absolutely indispensable strategic classic that is applicable across many range of theatres, not just military strategy.
Indeed The Art of War may be one of the true civilizational treasures, not just of ancient times, but of all times.
The narration by Michael Scott takes a very deep and serious tone that provides one with the atmosphere and feeling of military matters, bu may not be for all tastes.
Nonetheless, this edition is a worthy addition to anyone's library and deserves to be listened to multiple times.
