In the third book of this ruthless and unique series, Robert Greene applies the ancient wisdom of war to strategies for life. Spanning world civilisations, synthesising dozens of political, philosophical and religious texts and thousands of years of violent conflict, War is a comprehensive guide to the subtle social game of everyday life informed by the most ingenious and effective military principles in the history of war. Abundantly illustrated with examples from history, including the folly and genius of everyone from Napoleon to Margaret Thatcher, Shaka Zulu to Lord Nelson, Hannibal to Ulysses S. Grant, each of the thirty-three chapters outlines a strategy that will help you in life's wars. Learn the offensive strategies that require you to maintain the initiative and negotiate from a position of strength, or the defensive strategies designed to help you respond to dangerous situations and avoid un-winnable wars. The great warriors of battlefields and drawing rooms alike demonstrate that prudence, agility, balance and calm and a keen understanding that rational, resourceful and intuitive always defeat the panicked, the uncreative and the stupid. An indispensable book, War provides all the psychological ammunition you need to overcome patterns of failure and forever gain the upper hand.

What a wealth of information. If you like history, war or strategy. I love the stories and the examples more the terms and uses. To hear about Xenophon, Alexander, Themistocles, Hannibal . . . it was like being in High School and College again. He should make a documentary. It would be raining information. I think it should be a good course reader for class. Sometime for a World History course as a reader's guide for students on or off the course.
