I am 14 and while I understand the book and its concept, I felt that the author's commentary got into the way. In many places, the commentary was just rambling and had little place in this book.
I have heard a lot about this book. So gave it a shot and don't regret it. This book goes beyond war. You can adapt a lot of what you read here to life. I enjoyed it.
Not all sun tzu
The book had lots of notes and side stories blurred what sun tzu was saying. There would be three or four sentences of his work on a page with the rest relating to notes on the work. To some the notes may be helpful, I found them annoying.
