Born over 2,400 years ago, warrior, thinker, and leader Sun Tzu lived during a time of great internecine conflict in China. A classic of Chinese literature, Art of War reveals the strategies, tactics, and insights that lead to success. Mastery of warfare and the maintenance of power are the most important values in Sun's philosophy--without which there can be no peace or life. According to Sun, studying your enemy, detecting his weakness, allowing him to expose himself and then acting accordingly is the key to success. But, it is perhaps even more important to master the skill of winning without fighting. Sun's battle-proven strategies have been put into practice by countless leaders--from Mao Tse-tung to Napoleon to the planners of Operation Desert Storm. Filled with practical wisdom and strategy Art of War is an indispensable guide for anyone who want an edge over the competition. With powerful narration by George Guidall and Joe Mantegna, listeners are sure to be destined for greatness with this book.

"This ancient Chinese treatise on battle strategies and waging war, like Machiavelli's THE PRINCE, is still consulted by despots, generals, and captains of industry. Indeed, the Western world is coming to believe that its Taoist wisdom applies to all sorts of competitive situations. The reliable George Guidall narrates the extensive translator's notes. But first Joe Mantegna, star of TV's FIRST MONDAY, forays through Sun Tzu's admonitions. Mantegna has an unexpressive voice. However his timing, especially his manipulation of pauses and rhythms, is so apt that it --plus a fascinating text -- carries him victoriously through the fray. Y.R.
