The supreme Art of War is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
Sun Tzu, The Art of War, c. 500 BCE
The Art of War is one of those books that I’ve known about for decades: and for decades have been intending to read. I am sure I even have a copy somewhere. But I have so many books!
Well, that is my excuse and I am sure when I do finally read the book, it will have something interesting to say about making excuses and procrastination :)
