PERFECT: Only Book Today That Explains What Strategy Is
on January 18, 2012
All books on strategy talk about the application of strategy in business or other crafts (Such as Michael Porter's), but fail to explain what strategy is by it self. Strategy is a system, just like any other system; it has a specific way to operate it but with endless aplications and this book explains it in the only way that can be explained.
The book does not teach you to apply strategy, that is up to you and your professional orientation; it teaches you how strategy works regardless of what you do. After reading the land mark books on strategy (classic and new), I would not uncover the principles of the strategy machine; this book does it.
Gary thanks Sun Tzu for it for writing the art of war a million years ago, but I think Sun Tzu would be proud of this work.
