My latest pickup from Barnes and Nobel this past week, and an amazing local beer! 🍺 Simon Sinek has some amazing videos that you all should definitely check out on YouTube! He is a powerful speaker.

The Art of War by Sun Tzu

I picked up the Barnes and Noble collector’s edition of The Art of War free of charge, all thanks to the ebook settlement. I love how the cover and pages are gilded. It makes it very pretty to look at and can sit on a shelf well. You can pretty much find a free version of this anywhere online too if you don’t want to spend any money or have a fancy collector’s edition.

This is a timeless work that I finally got around to reading, and the actual content was pretty much what I expected. The list of strategies that Sun Tzu has compiled here can easily be applied to most of modern life. You will have to stretch a little bit on some of the outdated principles, but you can make it fit. Multiple times during my read I would think to myself “How can I make this fit with what I am doing in everyday life?”, and I would find some new insight. It is helpful to think about these things while you read to get the most out of it.

I know I don’t need to tell you much about this as hopefully everyone has heard of it by now. I mean it is over 2,500 years old. You probably have knowledge of many of the quotes already without even realizing it.

If you haven’t gotten to it yet it’s a quick read and well worth it. Don’t wait as long as I did.

“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”

Buy the book here! – The Art Of War
