    The book should be required reading for anyone calling themselves a human being.

    The knife looks amazing. Love the sleek lines.

    That sounds interesting, I have read a bit of his stuff. Art of War is a great easy read, nice to pick up anywhere in the book and just think on it. Thanks on the knife too!

    I've not read it but I know it's a classic, of sorts.

    What do you find most striking/interesting/thought provoking? (Serious question).

    Tony it is an overall great read but I probably like the part on battle positioning the best. It is like a Tom Robbins book in that you can read right through it or think about a paragraph for hours.

    Here's a good quote...

    “If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected .”
