This ancient Chinese treatise on battle strategies and waging war, like Machiavelli's THE PRINCE, is still consulted by despots, generals, and captains of industry. Indeed, the Western world is coming to believe that its Taoist wisdom applies to all sorts of competitive situations. The reliable George Guidall narrates the extensive translator's notes. But first Joe Mantegna, star of TV's FIRST MONDAY, forays through Sun Tzu's admonitions. Mantegna has an unexpressive voice. However his timing, especially his manipulation of pauses and rhythms, is so apt that it --plus a fascinating text -- carries him victoriously through the fray. Y.R.
