Learn the Art of War (Modern interpretation of)

I don't say this about many articles but here is another nugget of gold that is certainly worth more than the $25 it costs.

Yes, I have read it. You can get it for free if you shop around and ... be naughty. :lol: There are many different translations and youtubers who post such but these guys do a very quality job. And... some of the translations, even those translated by military personnel, are off or purposely misquoted.

Sun Tzu's Art of War is brilliant, even if it was written 2,400 years ago it still applies today. I have been reading into many such writings even including Mao Tse Tung on Guerrilla Warfare - a very interesting read and a great perspective to that kind of warfare.

Were you talking about the version I posted? Because that is the specific version I was referring to. I should have done this in the OP but here is a sample of it.

I've read a number of versions and this video series is on my iPod, seen it at somepoint.

Here's some links to some free reading:
http://www.scribd.com/search?category=& ... art+of+war
http://www.scribd.com/doc/103108520/Gue ... ao-Tsetung
You'll find a number of rewrites of the book, different translations but that's a good website to search. Also On Guerrilla Warfare is a great read - recommended.
