Though this book is rather old, it tells of strategies for team leadership that can be employed in todays society. It is a book detailing great planning and strategy of wartime. It discusses the role of leaders and how they should handle their troops. This information is useful when applied to managing one's own team. When managing a group of workers in a workplace, one must view them as an "army" so to speak who will work together for the greater good of accomplishing a goal. Sunzi's work gives very explicit directions on how to do this.

Even though this book was written over 2000 years ago, many of these tactics (many of whom I find are common sense) still apply today.

Unfortunately, I found the book was at times confusing to read and wondered a bit. This is really written like an instructional book, something I did not expect and most likely the reason why I didn't like the reading. This is a good book to read but paying $7.50 for it (I paid $3) is not worth it and you could find other books out there that contain much more information.

Old but still relevant. If you want spmething entertaining then it's the right book for you. Nothing very surprising in the content though.
