MACHINA, and TSR, are about tactical and strategic optimization, with philosophical and historical commentary sprinkled in on the side to provide context and examples. If you are interested in (a) improving your approach, process, mission, framework, or outlook in business, games, politics, or really any area of life, (b) deepening your understanding of why history unfolds the way it does by understanding power dynamics and the mindset of leaders, or (c) being entertained by concise and broad-ranging writing, I would recommend taking a look.
Sebastian thinks and writes on a very high level but refrains from delving too far into the abstract. This will not read like a philosophy journal or historical commentary. He researches comprehensively, drawing from, e.g. political trajectories in Ancient Japan, CIA operations manuals, and his own experiences, and then condenses his findings into immediately applicable lessons classified into overarching themes.
They say "those who forget history are doomed to repeat it," and Sebastian helps take this one step further: Those who analyze history can learn from it and get ahead.
If you're a subscriber to Sebastian's "Strategic Review" you will know the quality of his work; if you aren't, this is an excellent introduction to the writings of one of the most erudite and insightful thinkers of the contemporary business/ strategy/ effectiveness scene. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to think better and understand the world more deeply.
