Finally!  A version of the famous work that is easy for reference and contemplation!

This is by far the clearest and most user-friendly copy of The Art of War, I have encountered.  I have searched for years to find one that was easy to read.  This version surpassed my expectations by being organized by subject and separated into a rough list format.

There are many versions of this book, even several that are from the translation by Lionel Giles, but none I have examined are as accessible and worth owning in English.  (I don't read Chinese.)

5/5  Stars

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this free advanced copy of the ebook!

Quote:
"If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. 

If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. 

If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle."

A true classic.. Good to read every now and then and remind everyone how the business world works and simple strategies for success.

I have seen so many of these quotes used in business sales training that I thought I’d read the book.  It’s intersting to see the statement and how it is applied across various sales trainings in Corporate America.  An intersting read for sure.
