    Description

    The 13 chapters of The Art of War, each devoted to one aspect of warfare, were compiled by the high-ranking Chinese military general, strategist, and philosopher Sun-Tzu. In spite of its battlefield specificity, The Art of War has found new life in the modern age, with leaders in fields as wide and far-reaching as world politics, human psychology, and corporate strategy finding valuable insight in its timeworn words.

    Aidan Gillen - who has learned a thing or two about strategy through his roles as skilled manipulator Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish (Game of Thrones) and ambitious politician Tommy Carcetti (The Wire) - brilliantly performs this ancient classic. His experience in portraying insightful and, at times, cunning characters makes him a natural fit for this ancient collection of battlefield epigrams whose influence has grown tremendously in the modern world.

    Description of strategies and tactics you need in warfare
    Great book, I don't know how relevant it is in today's World though but still it's short and there are still at least some valid points but i am not an expert on this subject so read and judge by yourself

    The actual book The Art of War, not a commentary

    Excellent reading by Aidan Quinn, and a nice translation by an uncredited translator.

    People sometimes assume that because The Art of War is short, and it mentions Sun Tzu in the text, a given edition is an abridgment or a summary. No, The Art of War is just pithy, and was never intended to be a book. It was written down on scrolls around 500 BC. A translation of the text itself will be no more than 80 pages, often in the form of verse or bullet points, though a given edition might be longer because it contains additional material, such as an introduction and some of the classical commentary. For example, Lionel Giles' translation is 25 pages long and just under 11,000 words.

    As for the text speaking of Master Sun saying various things, that's not an uncommon device. The Book of Ecclesiastes does it, too, for example, and so does the Chuang Tzu. "Sun Tzu" appears to be an imaginary authority, inspired by a military expert named Sun Bin, rather than the actual author, so it's pretty logical.

    I mention this because at least a couple of the commenters here have come to the wrong conclusions about what this audio book is, and a lot of people have taken their word for it, judging by the approval ratings. This is a very good recording, and it would be a shame to overlook it because of a misunderstanding.

    Game of War

    The Art of War is a time tested classic of strategy and martial wisdom. The reputation of this book is extremely well known, so I won’t bother reviewing Sun Tzu. If you’ve ever been interested in this text, go for it.

    If you’re reading this review, my guess is that you’re wondering about the performance. In short, Aidan Gillen knocks it out of the park. If you’re a fan of Aidan Gillen (or Game of Thrones in general) what could be cooler than being schooled in the art of war by Lord Petyr Baelish himself? You owe it to yourself to give this a listen. Highly recommended!

    Commentary on The Art of War, not the actual book

    I expected this to be a narrated version of Sun Tzu's The Art of War. In reality it is a commentary on the book with some of it read.

    Aidan Gillen needs to narrate more books

    What made the experience of listening to The Art of War the most enjoyable?

    The narration

    What did you like best about this story?

    The simplicity, the sensibility that Sun Tzu brought to chaotic war.

    Which character – as performed by Aidan Gillen – was your favorite?

    ...

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Any additional comments?

    Please have Aidan Gillen narrate The Prince next, and really anything else. This man could read a phone book and I'd pay for it.

    short

    there is nothing in the title or the summary of this piece to suggest that it is not the full book, but it is not. it is incredibly short, and full of things that i have already heard.

    Great performance

    This ancient text may apply to many people's work. Anyone who works in a competitive environment can benefit from it, even if only a little. Even if you can't benefit from it, this work might help the listener to understand historical works dealing with wars better.

    The reading is excellent. Aidan Gillen does a great job reading the text. I don't know if it's because I've been watching Game of Thrones for four seasons, but it sounds like he's using a kind of Littlefinger voice here, which adds to the effect. I'd recommend this audiobook to pretty much anyone, even if they don't have an army.

    Thought I was getting the full book

    Great choice of narrator, but this is a synopsis of the book, not the book itself.

    Clever and extremely enjoyable

    Stroke of genius having Aidan Gillen read Art of War. His gentle Irish brogue is tough yet alluring. And as a fan of GoT, I can see Littlefinger conspiring over this document and making these words his own. Well done!

    Little finger Petyr Baelish

    “Always keep your foes confused. If they are never certain who you are or what you want, they cannot know what you are like to do next. Sometimes the best way to baffle them is to make moves that have no purpose, or even seem to work against you. “
