The Art of War cover

Entertainment > Reading >

(on Wikipedia)

A military treatise summing up the military experiences prior to and during the mid-Warring States period (475 BC - 221 BC).

Two editions of translations were released, and this publication includes everything:

  1. The 15 chapters of part 1 released in 1985
  2. The additional chapter released in 1985
  3. The 15 chapters from 1975's Part II, which were excised for that 1985 edition.

If this is what I think it is, then I first read this as The Second Art of War and found it a much better read than its predecessor. I was never able to find a book with that title.

  • aka Sun Bin: The Art of War
  • This is a two-book hardcover which also has the original/earlier The Art of War - (~476 BC book), by Sunzi
  • Published 2000-01-01
  • ISBN-10 7119024124
  • ISBN-13 978-7119024127
  • Note: I've read the author died in 310 BC, and I haven't seen a more accurate date for this book.

    • p.21 - Sunzi and Sun Bin lived more than 160 years apart.
  • Sun Bin (孫臏 · 孙膑)

    • Historians came to call him "Qi Sunzi" (Master Sun of Qi).

Iron Fist - (2017- television show) image

The son of a billionaire family survives them in a plane crash in the Himalayas, and returns after being raised by monks only to find their ancient enemies throughout his old home and business. Basically Marvel's Batman.

At first I was going to ignore this series, because the Iron Fist trailer made it look like utter trash, but the YUR A WHITE MALE "mainstream liberal media" response made me interested.

Even though the superhero genre is generally tiring, this show is well worth watching, and its response is a beautiful example of fake news manufactured by "social" "justice".

In a forest where any who die rise as zombies, an escaped convict does something something.

I got 1/3 in and got bored. It's too over-the-top.

Collections of science fiction short stories, curated by.. people I don't know and who have no authority in my mind. They came into being pre-internet and still cling to relevancy.

I was excited to find these, but their stories are hit-and-miss.
