The Plot 
This book was written 2500 years ago by a chinese militar.
This book is really actual. The reader can recognise strategies that can still be adopted by the great leaders. 
Although is written in millitary language, if we think of it as a metaphor, we can relate with our daily lives.
I could show several quotes but it is really interesting reading it.

Where the action takes place 
China.

How is it written
The translation is good and simple. Military language.

This is a classic of literature that everybody should read. It is good in the military camp or as a metaphor for business.
It is also the kind of book easy to read.
