4.0 out of 5 stars Good general introduction but no editor, 27 Dec. 2011
The book is written with the aim to give a non-specialized reader a broad overview of strategy as divided in general principles, land, sea and air strategy. This goal it achieves, but it should be noted that given the breadth and depth of the material covered, the book does not go into much detail( to do this it would have to be several volumes thick). Also, the book provides an interesting aspect of the evolution of strategy in each one of those aspects. It is disappointing though to see that the book is full of syntax errors, words missing, grammar errors, etc. This is unfortunate as I often found myself backtracking to try and figure out what a specific sentence meant. All in all though, a worthwhile introduction to the subject.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very well focused, 27 Jan. 2009
I picked up this book hoping to read about a concise theory or view of survival. Instead I got a collection of various stories, often written as a novel and so wide in view (the story of Xerox, the story of a hike in Mexico, etc) that it was very hard to find a connection between them. Even though the first few chapters were good, I find myself thinking that the author mixed up survival, success, profit making, etc in an effort to state numerous different facts. I have read many other excellent books on the subject and I find this one a fairly poor choice.
