's review

it was ok
bookshelves: audiobook, non-fiction

I listened to Volume 1.
Carl von Clausewitz like Marcel Proust takes delight in unnecessarily complicated sentences. His style of writing isn't very suitable to the audiobook format.
In the beginning he spends some time defining fundamentals and debunking bullshitters.
His writing is most interesting when he uses examples to illustrate his ideas.
Ultimately, I was bored too often and his remarks frequently couldn't capture my attention, 2,5 stars.
