This book was certainly not what I expected. The majority of it is literally about war - terrains, combatants, spies, etc. Of course, much can be gleaned from the more general statements about leading a group, treatment of a group, discipline, etc.

In all, it is worth the read if you're managing a group, in the military, or simply want to understand the dynamics and inner-workings of approaching an enemy (in any sense of the word). There is, after all, much wisdom to be gained here.

Competitive Success! Win at anything using the ancient secrets of history's greatest book on competition. Sun Tzu's lessons are timeless, as powerful in a modern boardroom as they have been on the battlefield. Sun Tzu teaches you not only how to win, but how to win easily! Two Books in One! This translation includes both a translation in English sentences and a character-by-character translation from the original Chinese characters as Sun Tzu wrote it. By reading the two versions side-by-side, you gain a much richer insight into the wisdom of Sun Tzu and his approach to winning.
