Format: Paperback
I agree with fellow reviewers that this is a
classic for any situation or need... However,
given Cleary's history of mistranslations (such
as The Book of the Five Rings) I believe that
a translation from a modern author of Chinese origin (maybe even another westerner- but I doubt it) who is fluent in both English and Chinese would fare better with readers. (I've seen one - unfortunately I forgot the author's name)

I'd recommend this book to anyone who seeks a greater understanding of how individuals and organizations function. The Art of War is ideal for those who seek self mastery while developing the ability to overcome one's opponents.
Whether in a military, business or personal context, this work transcends all others in its modern day applications. Various chapters discuss the cultivation of alliances, sensing vulnerabilities within your enemies and knowing when to attack.
The most helpful chapters deal with assessing one's own ability under varying conditions. I found the Thomas Cleary addition to be the most concise translation. This book will help one to become more sensitive and aware of their surroundings and more adaptive to change.

To me, this common English edition of "The Art of War" is very useful and comprehensive, because it immediatiately brings to my attentions and gives precise theses about the concept of planning and military strategem.

Needless to say, Mr. Cleary did a good job for making "the Art of War" as much plain as possible! Thanks!

This tape is difficult to listen to. The presentation just isn't good. The information seems valuable, but was hard to follow while listening in the car.

SunTzu's advice regarding preparation and how to be prepared for attack before it comes got me through my divorce with more confidence and less anxiety. I've also found it to be a helpful survival guide for a hostile workplace.

Format: Audio Cassette
This was a well-spoken, well read and nicely translated version of Sun-Tzu's master piece. It also is too short. I felt that since it was so cheap it probably was a good value, but I also have to convey my sense of disappointment in its length and depth. Would I buy this had I heard it once? No. But now that I do own it, I will listen to it many, many times.
