To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It took me so long to finish reading this book even though it was a few pages. I had to read then reread the texts to understand the mean and appreciate the words that were written for us. Still didn't understand a lot of it but that's the cool thing, if you keep reading and rereading, new meanings and thoughts appear further growing the appreciation for the texts.
Short and sweet. This book is not a narrative read, as I expected, but rather a bullet-pointed instruction manual on (largely ancient) warfare, although most of the philosophies dictated can be applied to contemporary means of conflict. It really is unique, and aside from a couple minor editing errors, it's rather flawless, even if a little convoluted at times. It is a very interesting read, and for a book originally written in 500 BC, it is very insightful with an exceptionally modern attitude.
The translation of the book, Art of War by Sun Tzu is ok. Not perfect but you can grasp the context of what the author intended. Other than that there are some issues with the formatting of the page layout. So the reading experience is not that great.
Overall if you do not care for any of that, buy the book, if not go for a better version.
Auch wenn es inhaltlich nur um Krieg geht, geht es letztendlich nicht nur um Kriegsstrategien. Es lehrt gleichzeitig den Umgang mit Menschen, es lehrt Techniken, die das Ziel haben, alles zu bekommen, was man von seinem Gegenüber möchte. Es ist symbolisch für den Umgang mit anderen Menschen. Wenig Seiten und Text und dennoch viel Inhalt.
