I ran across this interesting tidbit and thought the TMP crowd might find it useful. It seems it started out as a joke and took on a life of its own. To quote the wired article…


The whole thing started as a Twitter joke with Fitzgerald's friends. Jason Fritz from the Ink Spots blog tweeted last fall that he couldn't interest his six-year old in On War since the book, alas, has no pictures.

But my 5 year old grandson understands fighting very well, and when his little sister is in the playroom as he is trying to set up his guys, he understands as well the concept of friction.

That's great!

But the facings on his jacket are all wrong.

I can hardly wait to see Sun Tsu for kids.

Brilliant. But I'm dense enough to not be able to find Book One. I see the blog mentions that it's been posted, but not where it is. I also see there was a rough draft posted of a few pages of Book One, so didnt think that was it.

Evidently it's a work in progress, and you have to scroll back to the first post then read forward to get the gist. This is the frustrating thing about most blogs.

Interesting and amusing effort though; I wouldn't mind buying the finished product as a book.

The Art of War as a comic, not for kids as such, but lots of pictures.

I can heartily recommend it too, having owned a copy for years.

Let's see if we can sretch this concept to the boundaries of good taste:

Mein Kampf for kids?
