"To win without fighting is best," Sun Tzu said. For the Chinese philosopher/general war was synchronic with life. Tzu viewed the world as a network of combat zones where the stakes were high and struggle was the primary mode of being, where no one was to be trusted, and survival depended on nothing less than unconditional victory. Actors Ron Silver and B.D. Wong narrate this 2,500-year-old work of wisdom that continues to guide and inspire people of all cultures, teaching the principles of strategy required in everything from sports, to business, to affairs of the heart. Augmented by commentary and anecdotes, this audio edition maintains the pure, near-poetic tone of the original.

Audio quality does not exist since there is static
I purchased this audio book on the basis that the same audio book I had of this version was destroyed when I relocated. I do not know what the problem is but specifically at track 8 there is static, distortion, and the audio is not clear.
Fix this audio promptly please.
