Description

The 13 chapters of The Art of War, each devoted to one aspect of warfare, were compiled by the high-ranking Chinese military general, strategist, and philosopher Sun-Tzu. In spite of its battlefield specificity, The Art of War has found new life in the modern age, with leaders in fields as wide and far-reaching as world politics, human psychology, and corporate strategy finding valuable insight in its timeworn words.

Aidan Gillen - who has learned a thing or two about strategy through his roles as skilled manipulator Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish (Game of Thrones) and ambitious politician Tommy Carcetti (The Wire) - brilliantly performs this ancient classic. His experience in portraying insightful and, at times, cunning characters makes him a natural fit for this ancient collection of battlefield epigrams whose influence has grown tremendously in the modern world.

Outstanding

Exceptional rendition of a classic work. The stories and anecdotes were easy to follow. The way the work is presented helps capture the wisdom behind the ideas of the original author, I would recommend this work to anyone looking for a no nonsense telling of The Art of War.

interesting

I really liked this book, my first audiobook, wasn't too long and it was easy to listen to! one of my favourite quotes was "If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle." #Audible1

A Classic

A classic! Short as the book may be, it's so rich in informational content. A difficult book to convey, Aiden does a superb job in keeping the listener entranced in the subject matter. A book that'll certainly be repeated over and over, passed from generation to generation.

Great classic - I learned nothing

There was no better narrator than Aidan Gillen. He was the perfect person for this role.

Awesome the tittle describes it vvery well

Description of strategies and tactics you need in warfare
Great book, I don't know how relevant it is in today's World though but still it's short and there are still at least some valid points but i am not an expert on this subject so read and judge by yourself

Aidan Gillen needs to narrate more books

What made the experience of listening to The Art of War the most enjoyable?

The narration

What did you like best about this story?

The simplicity, the sensibility that Sun Tzu brought to chaotic war.

Which character – as performed by Aidan Gillen – was your favorite?

...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Please have Aidan Gillen narrate The Prince next, and really anything else. This man could read a phone book and I'd pay for it.

Great performance

This ancient text may apply to many people's work. Anyone who works in a competitive environment can benefit from it, even if only a little. Even if you can't benefit from it, this work might help the listener to understand historical works dealing with wars better.

The reading is excellent. Aidan Gillen does a great job reading the text. I don't know if it's because I've been watching Game of Thrones for four seasons, but it sounds like he's using a kind of Littlefinger voice here, which adds to the effect. I'd recommend this audiobook to pretty much anyone, even if they don't have an army.

Commentary on The Art of War, not the actual book

I expected this to be a narrated version of Sun Tzu's The Art of War. In reality it is a commentary on the book with some of it read.

Clever and extremely enjoyable

Stroke of genius having Aidan Gillen read Art of War. His gentle Irish brogue is tough yet alluring. And as a fan of GoT, I can see Littlefinger conspiring over this document and making these words his own. Well done!

The Classic “The Art of War”

The art of war is a densely compact book. Sun Tzu’s rhetoric and manner of explanation is to be recommended. I would recommend listening to this many times as, whilst you will pick up many things said the first time all of what has been given requires active thought. I was delighted to discover that some of the advice given can be used in our daily lives, perhaps not leading men into battle but preparing for confrontation will always be necessary.

Game of War

The Art of War is a time tested classic of strategy and martial wisdom. The reputation of this book is extremely well known, so I won’t bother reviewing Sun Tzu. If you’ve ever been interested in this text, go for it.

If you’re reading this review, my guess is that you’re wondering about the performance. In short, Aidan Gillen knocks it out of the park. If you’re a fan of Aidan Gillen (or Game of Thrones in general) what could be cooler than being schooled in the art of war by Lord Petyr Baelish himself? You owe it to yourself to give this a listen. Highly recommended!

Wow this could be audible's future

Getting the right people to narrate the book makes all the difference. Having Baelish narrate this one was spot on. Purchased it immediately, even though I don't know when I'll listen to it
