The ART OF WAR paradox

By in Reviews & Opinions on September 30, 2012

A few weeks ago, I was on the points auction site LISTIA and won the audiobook, “The Art of War”, and at 4000 points, paid dearly for it.

I assumed that since the “auction” page used the Amazon picture for it, it would include whatever packaging usually comes when you buy it on Amazon; and more importantly, a commercially produced CD. Instead, what I got was a home-burned CD with a home printed label. Admittedly, a very nicely made label. I would show it to you, but it’s out in the truck. Here is a screenshot of the ad;

Now, what would a warrior do about this? Break the CD and threaten the sender with the shards? It’s hard to scare anyone via the mail. I guess I will listen to the CD and live to fight another day.

Have your say!
