Publisher's Summary

Forget everything you think you know about strength, strategy, and success. This brilliant adaptation of the ancient masterpiece The Art of War shows women how to use Sun Tzu's philosophy to win in every aspect of life.

Would you like to transform your weaknesses into strengths? Succeed at work without compromising your ethics? Integrate your style and personal philosophy into every action you take? If so, this audiobook is for you. Chin-Ning Chu brings the eternal wisdom of philosopher-general Sun Tzu to women looking to gain a better understanding of who they are and, more important, who they want to be.

In the West, when we think of war, we imagine battle, casualties, brutality. But Sun Tsu, who wrote The Art of War 2,500 years ago, was Chinese, and their view of war is not about fighting. It is about determining the most efficient way of gaining victory with the least amount of conflict. That's why his book is particularly appropriate for women, as most women are not comfortable with direct confrontation. Women are natural negotiators and problem solvers; most prefer win-win situations, rather than "winner takes all".

Sun Tzu's book is about the application of strategies, and every strategy requires us to understand the people around us, our own strengths and weaknesses, our goals and our fears. We must integrate ourselves and our unique talents into the strategies we employ in order to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of our goals and dreams.

The Art of War is the most influential book on strategy ever published, selling tens of millions of copies worldwide. Written by one of today's foremost authorities on Sun Tzu, The Art of War for Women is sure to become a classic in its own right.

    "Amazing break down of the Art of war"
    What made the experience of listening to The Art of War for Women the most enjoyable?

    I've read the art of war before, but I was a little confused about its meaning and how to use it in real life. The author breaks down the book and its original meaning and how to use it in the modern world.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of War for Women?

    The Author talks about ruthlessness, finishing the job and developing the killer instinct (Which I didn't expect). Also she gives an isight into the way Asian business people think, this book is a must for anyone who does business in Asia or deals with Asian business people.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    Very good narration , clear and well paced.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, in parts its very deep and requires reflection


    Any additional comments?

    I'd also recommend "Thick face black heart" by this Author, It's a great companion.

    "Not for Women Only"

    Methodical and comprehensive approach to Sun Tzu's rules. She reviews each one, and provides substantive recommendations on how to apply them to everyday working life. Good rules that can apply to all -- not for women only.

    "Excellent! Very clear interpretation"

    After having read several times the Art of War and never quite understood it, this book finally provides the modern interpretation I so much needed! And it will be useful for everybody, not just women!!

    "A little disappointing"
    What did you love best about The Art of War for Women?

    Discussion of Sun Tzu's strategy was, for the most part, informative. Some of the interpretations were a bit of a stretch.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narration was good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was put off first by the slightly anti-male sentiment and by the emphasis on "dress for the job you want" which has been done to death.
