    The translation included by Michaelson is appropriate for someone who wants to read the Art of War for the first time. It is simple enough for the modern man to comprehend while retaining the "classic" sense of the text. Moreover, the inclusion of the headings in the original text of the Art of War is a good guide for someone who wants to master the text. With respect to the commentaries on success, it did not really left a mark with me personally as a reader.

However, I find the last part enlightening where different people have shared their main takeaway in reading the Art of War. Overall, I would recommend Michaelson's book to a layman who wants to understand Sun Tzu because the book provides an introduction that provides the context of Sun Tzu's thinking, translation that's easy to grasp, and the application of the lessons of the text.

    The first half of the book contains the original 13 chapters of the "Art of War" by Sun Tzu - the reason why read this book. And it was interesting. But the second half is Carnegie-style interpretations of the author. It neither impressed nor bothered me.

    My parents got me this book because they know that I'm interested in things like that (although my Chinese is terrible). And it took some time, but I finally read this book! Well, this book has two parts - Part One is the translation of The Art of War in English. Part Two is how you can apply The Art Of War to your life. Each chapter is pretty short, and there's an even shorter summary at the end of each chapter. For Part Two, it's subdivided into five sections - Personal Characteristics for Succ My parents got me this book because they know that I'm interested in things like that (although my Chinese is terrible).

Part Two is how you can apply The Art Of War to your life. Each chapter is pretty short, and there's an even shorter summary at the end of each chapter. For Part Two, it's subdivided into five sections - Personal Characteristics for Success, Strategies for Success, Tactics for Success, Competitive Success, and Examples for Success. So that is what the book is about. And from the blurb, it says that this book is "following up on the bestselling success of Sun Tzu: The Art of War for Managers". That gave me a huge "aha" moment. This book felt so much like reading a business book, although it's supposed to be a general self-help type of book. I'm not sure if it's the language or just a weird sense that comes from reading too many business-related books, but I kept thinking I was reading a managing handbook. So if you're the type that drops off at the hint of "business", you might want to hold back on this book. All in all, this is a pretty interesting book. Apart from the sense that I was reading something business-related (which I didn't actually mind that much), this is an easy-to-read book about how Sun Tzu could apply to our lives.

    The first half of the book is an actual copy of The Art of War(and I didn't know that so I had to make do with the crappy pdf file of The Art of War) the second part is the important lessons and skills that you can use in life that can be interpreted from The Art of War. What I liked: 1) how the author related the writings of Sun Tzu to modern life What I didn't like: 1) the examples. More of business examples that life itself examples.

    "Sun Tzu For Success" is probably most correct name for this book. I mean that it provides very high level overview of points and actions that leads to success. Book is not thick so covers very basic things and suits for those who just started their journey on self-development path. However already experienced ones can find it exciting to read about Sun Tzu's strategies with modern explanations. Books is good enough, but not perfect. I've expected more from it. Really looking forward for another wo "Sun Tzu For Success" is probably most correct name for this book. I mean that it provides very high level overview of points and actions that leads to success.

Really looking forward for another works not so high level with more practical details.

    While there were some good points raised in application of Sun Tzu principles in working towards your goals, they were rarely delved into depth. The first part of the book is a brief translation of the Sun Tzu Art of War text. For a clearer and much more detailed analysis of the Sun Tzu Art of War (with original text), I would highly recommend "Qi Men Dun Jia Sun Tzu Warcraft" by Joey Yap instead.

    Has the whole Sun Tzu and the Art of War in translation in it, so there's that. It's attempts to connect it to business: not so good. Also funny: The discussion of the Art of War by US soldiers in the War in Afghanistan, a war Sun Tzu would TOTALLY think is stupid because it's a prolongued campaign and not winnable.

    This books compliments the 33 Strategies of War by Robert Green. What this book does is to put muscles on the skeleton rules of war so that you are able to see the daily battles of life.
