"The need-to-know strategies that can also be used for 'winning the subtle social game of everyday life.'"—Business Insider
"Greene’s specialty is analyzing the lives and philosophies of historical figures like Sun Tzu and Napoleon, and extracting from them tips on how to manipulate people and situations—a cutthroat worldview that has earned him a devoted following among a like-minded readership of rappers, drug dealers and corporate executives."—The New York Times

This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is an in depth exploration of strategy, applicable to military, political, relational, business, and other wars. Each topic includes at least two stories from history or literature to illustrate the point, keys to warfare on implementing in daily life, quotes from external sources, and an image to help memorize the strategy. It is one of the most complete books I have ever come across - the author cares about his work and research and was able to include a wealth of information on each topic. This is not a book that you will pick up and read through in one sitting. Besides clocking in at almost 500 pages, each topic is so dense that it is worth taking your time and mulling it over before moving on.
Some of the examples used include excerpts from Napolean, Sherman, FDR, Lincoln, Martin Luther, the Bible, and much more. The sheer variety of topics covered will keep your focus throughout the book.
One thing I really appreciated about this book: It is virtually free of any 'politization'. There is no pandering to the left or right, no snide digs at current administrators, etc. It's a book that will stand the test of time and one that anyone will benefit from reading.
