The Art of War by Sun Tzu

I decided to read this book as it was referenced in many movies and i wanted to see what the big deal was.
This book dates back to the 5th century and was written by Sun Tzu, a military strategist. The book contains 13 chapters, each of which contains information about a certain aspect of war. It has been used in businesses and war tactics and also legal strategy since 1018.
Its 13 chapters are called 1. Detail assessment and planning
                                         2. Waging war
                                         3. Strategic planning
                                         4. Disposition of army
                                         5. Forces
                                         6. Weaknesses and Strengths
                                         7. Military maneuvers
                                         8. Variations and Adaptability
                                         9. Movement and development of troops
                                         10. Terrain
                                         11. The nine battle grounds
                                         12. Attacking with fire
                                         13. Intelligence
i would really recommend this book to everyone as a must read. It is a tough read with a lot of information to absorb but it really is excellently written and an inspirational piece of writing.
