“Game of Thrones” Star Aidan Gillen’s Performance of Sun Tzu’s The Art of War Now Available as an Audio Download at Audible.com

NEWARK, N.J. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 31, 2015 — Audible Studios, a production arm of Audible.com, today announced the release of Aidan Gillen’s new interpretation of Sun Tzu’s classic military treatise, The Art of War. This recording of the legendary general and philosopher’s best-known work by “Game of Thrones” star Gillen is now available for download at www.audible.com/ArtofWar.

“This was a fascinating book to narrate, with surprisingly apt insights into modern life on every page,” said Gillen. “And as an artistic endeavor, The Art of War was a natural progression from the Machiavellian strategist I play on television. It turns out Sun Tzu and Littlefinger have a lot in common.”

“Fans of Aidan’s will love hearing him interpret this enduringly influential text,” said Audible Publisher and EVP Beth Anderson. “This ancient Chinese guide to practical warfare is required listening for anyone who wants to get ahead in today’s world, but you can also simply relax and enjoy Aidan’s playful, imaginative delivery.”

In addition to Gillen, among the acclaimed performers who have narrated works of literature for Audible are Dan Stevens, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kate Winslet and Tim Robbins. In 2013, Audible Studios won its first Grammy Award, for its production of Janis Ian’s memoir Society’s Child, and also won the Audie Award for Audiobook of the Year, for Colin Firth’s performance of Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair.
