Life is a struggle. It is one fought against other people, whether it be against a rival politician in an election, relatives in a family feud, or against bosses and bullies at work. Anything that can help out in these situations is always a help for those who could be considered underdogs, and this book is a very good attempt at this.
Whilst the book's title would seem to be aimed a wannabe generals and military commanders (wherther in real life or in a virtual game-playing one), the various strategies can be applied to any walk of life. It talks you through the strategies and how they were applied in real life. With a little re-wording on your own part, you can then apply them to your own problems.
Machiavellian in its approach, this book and its strategies will not be for everyone - I myself found some proposed strategies quite excessive if not heartless and just as likely to cause more problems than they solve. But sometimes you can only fight fire with fire, and let's face it, everyone who has faced a bullying boss at work (I certainly have) will want to give them a taste of their own medicine - and some ideas in these pages will help you do so whilst keeping your slate clean.
This book - and the other two written by Robert Greene, also sold here on Amazon - are useful guides on one-upmanship, but I would caution people to not take these lessons too much to heart, for as I have already said, making yourself the office Machiavelli will make you numerous enemies, and that leads to more problems in the long run. Otherwise, an entertaining read and a useful guide to life and its bullies.
