The edition I read was an e-book, but the page count is about what I would estimate if it was in print. Very interesting treatise on military maneuvering and strategy. It's amazing that, centuries later, it still holds wisdom that is applicable not just to combat but really to everyday life -- make decisions from a position of strength, know yourself and what you're capable of, know what resources are at your disposal, contemplate the present situation before taking action. I highly recommend it to anyone. It's a quick but reinforcing read.

Quotes Jerry Liked

Sun Tzu
“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”
Sun Tzu, The Art of War
