The contemporary companion to Sun-tzu's The Art of War, this brilliant distillation of the strategies of war can help us gain mastery in the modern world.
The 33 Strategies of War is a comprehensive guide to the subtle social game of everyday life informed by the most ingenious and effective military principles in war. It's the I-Ching of conflict, the contemporary companion to sun Tzu's The Art of War, and is abundantly illustrated with examples from history, including the folly and genius of everyone from Napoleon to Margaret Thatcher, Hannibal to Ulysses S. Grant, from movie moguls to Samurai swordsmen.
Insightful, and original in scope and content.
This work covers many subjects not easily searchable, or spoken about. That in itself makes it valuable. I liked the historical examples, although not always accurate, the points were straight-forward, and taken. What is clear, is the importance of strategy in all aspects of life.
I remember as a young man, my boss always repeating the same phrase: "time to go into battle." I believed it to be a foolhardy thing to say. There was no war, no battle. We were consultants assigned on a contract to perform a paid solution. The people we worked with were very pleasant, and accommodating. Yet as I grew older, adding on experience, I now know what was meant by that classic mantra.
The 33 Strategies of War has taken it to historical heights.
Well done Mr.Greene, I actually learned something.
Not working right!
The second half of the book does not play! How can I fix this? Or get a refund?
Very interesting and insightful! This book should be titled: "The Art of War.....ON STERIODS". Real life examples of history's best strategists and the lessons we need to learn from them! Awesome!!!
