The Art of War - A Review

The Art of War is a work whose title should not be new to anyone whose reading ability allows them to read this sentence.

It is considered, by many, to be the most fundamental military strategy manual of all time.

Having consumed and digested the material contained within it I can easily see how all of the military strategies that I have been exposed to derive from this core work.

The only discrepancy that I see in the work is that in an earlier chapters of the book there is commentary about how the enemy's preparedness can be derived based on a number of factors that can be observed from afar and through deduction of many aspects of the environment but in the last chapter is states that this is impossible and that only spies can provide you with the information you need.
