By Bob Spear from Heartland Reviews (www.heartlandreviews.com) Leavenworth, KS -- As a retired military intelligence professional and conflict theorist, I must say this is the best interpretation of Sun Tzu¿s classic work I have read. The author focuses on the meanings behind this ancient Chinese war philosopher¿s writings. He puts them into a modern context, making them easy to understand. Apparently the Department of Defense agrees with me on this, since they have selected Mr. Cantrell¿s book as a text for the National War College in Washington DC. This is a must read for all military officers and business leaders. It rated a perfect five hearts.

I¿ve heard a lot of people say that they read Sun Tzu and didn¿t understand it. It seemed to me like a simple philosophy ¿ ¿use your strengths against your enemy¿s weakness¿ ¿ and all that. But there really is more to Sun Tzu on the Art of War. This book not only ¿makes sense,¿ but also adds strategic analysis for present day use to the ancient text, and includes a full translation of the original text. Understanding Sun Tzu on the Art of War does not just simplify the text or substitute business phrases for the original text ¿ it¿s a useful, intriguing, and worthwhile addition to my collection of Sun Tzu books.Was this review helpful?
