I bought this book and the most I digested is a chapter a day, the way I see it is "its one thing understanding something, quite another knowing and applying it".
It shows us how the 33 startegies can be applied in our daily life when faced with those little everyday wars.
If you understand Sun Tzu's Art of war thoroughly you may not have much to learn from this book, but still interesting and does show how many in history applied these war principles to gain an upperhand from Samurai Grandmasters to Political leaders such as Margaret Thatcher.
Overall an interesting read and a great self help book. There'll be a chapter in there for everyone mine personally was chapter 4 bit long to explain right now but I'm sure some of these tactics outlined will bring most of you a smirk if not a smile at some point in the book. : )
And it is brilliant, I'm just 20 pages away from the end of the book now.
One thing I have found is that the book makes you think very deeply, remembering events in the past and how you might have applied these strategies to make things happen differently, so I find it's better to read when you are fully awake in the morning rather than last thing at night. I have found that if I try and read too much at once then I don't get so much value out of it because each chapter is worth thinking about in detail.
It does make you rather Machiavellian in your everyday thinking and you do need to think about your own sense of morality and make sure the book doesn't corrupt you.
For this reason I suspect that just like 48 Laws of Power I will also be periodically re-reading this book for years to come.
There is a lot of useful information but please note this book teaches corruption and immorality as tools to succeed and overwhelm the enemy. Me as a person of strong morals I embraced this information to advance my knowledge and to counter those who may use these strategies to overwhelm me.
I especially liked the Dominate while seeming to submit: The Passive Aggression Strategy and the Lose battles but Win the War, Grand Strategy. These sections were very interesting. Every one assumes wars are only played out in the battlefield but this is incorrect. War has many forms including personal, political and diplomatic. A famous quote by Mao Zedong explains this well: "Politics is war without bloodshed while war is politics with bloodshed."
Overall this is a good book which you can choose to use the information in a defensive or offensive way. It will be the readers choice.
I write reviews to help fellow customers. I hope you found my review helpful.
