Review: Sun Tzu - The Art of War

The Art of War by Sun Tzu

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In this quick read, Sun Tzu shares advice on how to approach and prevail in conflict. Though this book is focused on a time where war was hand to hand, I can see how Tzu’s advice is seen as timeless. Weapons have advanced but human nature remains.

“Humble words and increased preparations are signs that the enemy is about to advance. Violent language and driving forward as if to the attack are signs that he will retreat.”

“If it is to your advantage, make a forward move; if not stay where you are.”

A worthwhile read, if only for the knowledge that a battle should be fought from where it is high, dry and sunny!
