The Art of War: The Essential Translation of the Classic Book of Life

Author: Suntzu, Translated by John Minford

Narrator: Ray Porter and Lorna Raver

Unabridged: 9 hr 22 min

Format: Digital Audiobook

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Genre: History

Synopsis

For more than two thousand years, The Art of War has stood as a cornerstone of Chinese culture, a lucid text that reveals as much about psychology, politics, and economics as it does about battlefield strategy. The influence of Suntzus text has grown tremendously in the West in recent years, with military leaders, politicians, and corporate executives alike finding valuable insight in these ancient words. In this new translation, scholar John Minford brings this seminal work to life for modern listeners, presenting the core text in two formats. First are the thirteen chapters of the original work by Suntzu, followed by the same text with extensive running commentary by classical Chinese scholars as well as by Minford himself. The result is an opportunity for Western readers to apply Suntzus work to the many aspects of our lives.
