      @Zee if you are interested in the Art of War and want a copy pick up Thomas Cleary. I love his stuff, I own some of his other translated books too.

      …OMG I need to stop talking about books >.<

      @Diya whats the diff between the Art of War book by Sun Tzu and the one by Sun Tzu and Thomas Cleary? The one that comes up on the search is the book by Sun Tzu.

      @AjFinance The Art of War is written by Sun Tzu as an English reader I need a translated version. Thomas Cleary’s doesn’t only translate the book but also adds depth and explanation to the book and it also includes essay and previously undiscovered part of the Art of War better know as the Silver Sparrow Art of War. I included a link the the book

There have been 43 American Presidents, but only @diya, @MattJuniper and myself can understand both the incredibly privilege and immense burden that comes with holding the office of King of the Mountain.
