This was a really fun review to create. The Art of War by Sun Tzu is a classic in the strategies of war BUT it can be mined for it’s leadership insights. In this review, I did my best to link the ideas in the art of war to modern-day ideas in the field of leadership. Some of them are probably a bit general or obvious, but I think it works. I did this because I wanted the viewer to be able to translate the ideas of Sun Tzu, rooted in war, to ideas rooted in actionable insights in the leadership field. The idea is to make the content actionable-and it is hard to do that if you are talking about war because rarely are we engaged in that kind of combat!
A lot of people seem to like this review, even though it is ‘low’ on the actual illustration-side. The plus is that the theme makes up for that. This book has a lot of spirit and lends itself to mystery, history, and its own style. The drawing of the dragon in this, along with putting the review on a ‘scroll’ was just a blast. I think that is what gives this review it’s edge. Even the music is tailored to the unique and ancient spirt of this book! Here is the video for The Art of War by Sun Tzu:
