The Art of War by Sun Tzu
Review by Oliver
The Art of War may be one of the greatest classics of all time. Whether you’re a fan of philosophy, a classics reader, or just need something to read while you’re locked up in quarantine, The Art of War is for you. Originally written by Chinese war general Sun Tzu, The Art of War has been morphed and re-imagined multiple times since its original publishing in 500 B.C; yet it still holds its original messages and meanings. If it’s not apparent yet, this is no ordinary book, The Art of War was originally, as you may guess, an ancient Chinese piece of literature on war tactics and strategies. However Sun Tzu’s messages are still relevant to everyday life.
I was at first overwhelmed reading The Art of War as its many ideologies were tough to grasp, due to the ancient vocabulary and translation. however, I soon came to understand the basis of its lessons and stories. The book is enjoyable for many reasons, one being that, because it is a plotless book, it is easy to pick up and drop at any time. Eliminating the typical stress of finishing a book . The Art of War is a book to be enjoyed by anyone seeking a challenge of the mind.
