War has taken such a strange turn in these days. Drones instead of soldiers, countries with nuclear warheads that are so primitive you expect to see Christ riding over the hill on a donkey. Not sure how much these "principles" apply anymore.

Pretty interesting read, I have read a lot of Sun Tzu but never Sun Bin, they both are very similar with some smaller differences on the emphasis of war.

There are a variety of sources and interpretations of the Art of War. I think this one falls a little short. I didn't enjoy reading it as much as I expected.
