Ah Sun Tzu, a man of sheer greatness. this is a well worth download, although the file could do without the annoying endless ramblings and annotations by the team who translated it, though a fine job they did. my advice download as a document delete all the drivle at the beggining and then save the actual book as a PDF for easy reading
