The Kindle version was kind of confusing because of the editor/translator person's comments, but the stuff that was actually from Art of War was pretty cool. Sometimes it seemed obvious, because today we're pretty advanced militarily, but Sun Tzu's teachings were almost revolutionary back then, and we still use those basic ideas today. I liked thinking about how these principles could apply to my life--for example, don't wait for the enemy to attack to be prepared is like making sure I'm ready for an emergency before it happens.
