Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" has provided strategists with essential advice on battlefield tactics and management strategies for more than two thousand years. In recent years, "The Art of War" has become a cult book for business leaders and is regarded as essential reading for global entrepreneurs seeking to master strategy. The book has also, unsurprisingly, had a huge influence on military planning both in the East and West. Assuming you don't necessarily have any countries to invade or plan to lay siege to any kingdoms in the foreseeable future author Karen McCreadie interprets Sun Tzu's strategies for the debatably less dangerous pursuit of business.This brilliant interpretation of Sun Tzu's work is not a substitute for the original. Its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Master Sun's extraordinary insights by bringing them to life through modern business case-studies. The fantastic format of Karen's work helps to transform the undeniable wisdom contained in the original "The Art of War" into an entertaining accompaniment to one of the greatest books ever written.Key selling points are: it builds on the reputation of an international bestseller; timeless theories explained and illuminated by use of by 21st century examples; and, gets straight to the essence of the original, brilliant, tried-and-tested theories in an accessible and modern style. In 52 brilliant chapters, the author uses up-to-date examples to reveal the key messages of Sun Tzu's advice, ready for immediate real-world application. Chapters are completely independent of one another so readers can easily dip in and out.

First I should state that I had a hard time forcing myself to read the book. It was well written and easy to follow, but it was more like homework than enjoyable reading. I probably should have stopped reading it since I obviosly didn't want to.....guess my need to complete a task kicked in!
The book gives a quote from Sun Tzu's The Art of War and then followed with an explanation and numerous examples of corporatations and CEO's applications (or lack there of) of the concept at hand. Many examples were interesting and some will go into the brain as 'fun and useless information' that is great at parties! For example, Gerber tried to get into the African market but failed miserably because many Africans are illiterate and on the packaging of goods, a picture of what is inside the bottle is portrayed. Imagine how gross it would be to see that smiling baby on the label thinking that was in the jar!
I am a detailed note taker when reading educational books but I found I did not bookmark much on my Kindle with this read. Mostly because it didn't apply to me and my sized company.
I also felt like the author would unfairly poke jabs at people that did not share her beliefs. For example, she made fun of President Bush and cited the quote "a supreme lack of intelligence" for really no reason at all. Not really sure why the war in Iraq was discussed in a business book.... I was also a little offended when she quoted Malcolm X at the beginning of a chapter (34) stating: "You show me a capitalist and I'll show you a bloodsucker." Really? In a book about capitalism?
To sum up, this book wasn't a total waste of time however, if you are looking for something to help your teeny, tiny small business, look somewhere else. If you have a few hours to kill on a plane or waiting for an oil change, it is interesting enough to pass the time without a lot of critical thought.
