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.

Now talking about the book I think it's the most overated book that I have read so far. So my suggestion would be not to waste time on this.
It is written point wise that also for me seems a little childish.
It talks about different tactics of warfare which is completely irrelevant in today's time. One atom bomb and all your Art of War would go in vain.
I though of giving it 2 stars but the reviews that is there on the cover of the book is so very good that it made me give it 1 star.
Also comparing it with Gita is complete insult to human civilization.
Rest I would say if you have a lot of time and want to waste it and get angry after few days then I would suggest you to go for this.
This should be explained to the buyer before purchase.
While it's all war orientated, there are many wise teachings that you could apply to aspects of social or business culture.
I recommend this book to anyone looking to broaden their knowledge as you will likely become wiser from digesting it's contents. Having read it, you may find you make more sound decisions and exercise better judgement in various aspects of your life.
