I accidentally bought this book, thinking that it might apply to modern warfare. No such luck. It's about application of his principles to the corporate world. Perhaps good if that's what you're after.

Unrelentingly dull.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Interpretation of the Original 8 Nov. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The original On War is difficult to read and understand. This version is a modern interpretation from the point of view of a Business manager making it more accessible to the modern reader. Read this version to get the gist of the original, then if you are game with a lot of free time, try the real On War.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worthless 15 Feb. 2013
By Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Each chapter is two pages long. Hardly enough to impart anything meaningful.
The chapters are vague and very general in nature.
I was very dissapointed and had hoped for some useful information.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cliffs Notes - not insights 18 Aug. 2012
By steddyb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In my search for a distilled version of Von Clausewitz's On War that related key military concepts to the business world, I purchased this book. While compact in form, the author attempts to allocate a grand total of 2 pages to each of the 52 key concepts that are highlighted. Clearly this is not enough space to begin exploring each of Carl's concepts, let alone tie the concepts to business or to make recommendations on implementation. Case examples are weak and topical at best (what can you discuss in 2 paragraphs?) and the 'key' messages are closer to a 'Top 10 ways to get ahdead in business' article on Yahoo than to a thoughtful dissection and application of strategic concepts.
This book is a serious let-down for anyone interested in military or corporate strategy.
