The 33 Strategies of War Audio CD – Audiobook, April 2, 2007
|New from||Used from|
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.

1. Make sure you have more options than your competitors
2. Victory is gained not by destroying your competitors but rather frightening all of them.
3. Silence is great strategic device that's not used by many.
4. Take long time to say "YES" and "NO" they are the most used words but yet nobody takes enough time to ponder over it before saying yes/no.
There's a lot more that one can take away from this book however these are the things I remember the most.

Reading this book alongside the 48 Laws of Power will complement it further. Do be warned its quite a long read but worth while.
Military men don't waste time in endless debates, but learn to manage difficult and life-threatening situations with speed, incisiveness, creativity and leadership. In the battle-field you either live or die, and there are no excuses for coming in second place. While at the same time the enemy is doing everything to make sure you fail.
The assorted examples in this book are of a very high order of sophistication and geographical breadth. Good for casual reading but better for gaining valuable experience in dealing with difficult people and situations in life.
This book is fantastic. I'm specifically utilizing the skills you teach to set goals in my life. I've always been a fan of setting longer term goals; the strategies you teach compound my thoughts as well as offer new insights.
