    This copy of The Art of War contains MANY translation notes and historical anecdotes. I found them very helpful for understanding the passages, but if you aren't looking for all the extras this copy probably isn't the one for you!

    This one by far exceeds the rest, I feel it holds true to the original translation but has the right twist for modern understanding! Must have for all military, LEO's.
  • Confusing

    This book is confusing not because of its concepts but because almost the entire book is notes.

    This was a good read although difficult because some of the content was dry. This should be read by anyone that has strategic plans whether in battle or in general life.

  • Excessive

    I think it rather excessive that the actual art of war translation doesn't begin until the 74th page. Otherwise however it is good and very detailed
