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.<

Spanning world civilizations, synthesizing dozens of political, philosophical, and religious texts and thousands of years of violent conflict, this is a comprehensive guide to getting ahead and staying there.

Each chapter outlines an approach that will help you win your life's wars. Learn the offensive strategies that require you to maintain the initiative and negotiate from a position of strength, and the defensive strategies that enable you to respond to dangerous situations and avoid situations where winning is impossible.<

As in The 48 Laws of Power, Robert Greene uses illustrative examples from history: Lyndon Johnson's tenacity, Julius Caesar's decisiveness, Joan Crawford's refusal to compromise, Ted Williams's competitive drive, and the folly and genius of everyone from Napoleon to Margaret Thatcher, Shaka the Zulu to Ulysses S. Grant. Great warriors of the battlefield and the drawing room demonstrate prudence, agility, balance, and calm. The rational, resourceful, and intuitive always defeat the panicked, uncreative, and stupid.

Informed by the most ingenious and effective military principles in war, The 33 Strategies provides all the psychological ammunition you need to overcome patterns of failure and forever gain the upper hand.

I would of liked if the side notes were narrated as well, I felt like a lot of great content was being left out. My expectations were so high that I think I disappointed myself. It's one of those books that you read, highlight important lines or phrases and just revise throughout life. SO much information and stories.

Interesting correlations to be made from historical events to modern life. Not every topic or train of thought was applicable to me, but many were. Many aggressive tactics, but some good insight was provided.

Paranoia, inspiring and weird. Definitely not what I was expecting. I should have done more research on it before wasting a credit on this.

The reader should have taken the fact into consideration that most listener of this book listen with their headphones not with speaker . The volume of the voice of narrator is incredibly low. I'm dissatisfied

Seriously, at times I felt like this guy had to be looking over my shoulder at work that day when he's describing the business-world application of these strategies. Some I was aware of, some were completely new. This isn't a life changer book, but it definitely ups your business I.Q.
