2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Art of War by Sun Tzu (Smarter Comics)

The Art of War from SmarterComics: How to be Successful in Any Competition, 2nd EditionThe Art of War from SmarterComics: How to be Successful in Any Competition, 2nd Edition by Sun Tzu
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have read a couple other versions of The Are of War, which I enjoyed a lot. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a comic book version, but I thought it was a great idea. It only took about 30 minutes to read and I have to admit I was a bit surprised at the quantity and quality of Sun Tzu’s philosophy that was in this (comic) book.

The illustrations were well done and the “characters” and “story” changes for different “lessons” that are presented in the book. So it’s more of a “short stories” comic book.

I think that the Smarter Comics version of The Art of War is a great way to get a basic understanding of The Art of War or a great starting point for any one who thinks they might be interested in reading a more “complete” version later.

I know that Smarter Comics are “comics that make you smarter” but I thought the quiz at the end was a bit much (but not enough to change my rating).
