In this book, Greene takes us on a journey through thousands of years of wars and conflicts and their political, philosophical, and religious motives and justifications.
He does a wonderful job analyzing some of the most effective war strategies in history, as executed by a men and women like Napoleon, Margaret Thatcher, Lyndon Johnson, George Patton, and others, and extracting simple, powerful lessons that can be used to gain the advantage in any competitive endeavor.
Characteristic of his style, Greene isn’t concerned with the morality or ethics of such strategies. He simply shows you what has worked and why, and lets you decide what is right and wrong.
I really enjoyed it and found many of the principles especially relevant to my work, as the heath and fitness industry is notoriously cutthroat.
