This book was extremely strange in that, in many regards, it could have been written right now. Even with the advent of technology in warfare, so much of this makes perfect sense. It's even completely applicable outside of war. This works well for business, for sports, heck, I can see this working for chess. What most remarkable, though, is that even though it's obvious Sun Tzu was a genious, he speaks simply. Some highly intelligent people can't communicate with other people at all, but this man knew how to get to the pith of his ideas and make them perfectly clear, which to me is a sign of real intelligence.
